Daniel Garcia – 1st Year Ph.D. in Education at University of California, Irvine 

Daniel is a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Irvine’s School of Education, examining the role of faculty mentors in the lives of first-generation Latino/x STEM majors. As a first-generation college student and the child of undocumented Mexican immigrants, he faced many systemic challenges and homelessness that pushed him out of the biochemistry major he pursued initially. However, these experiences allowed him to recognize the underlying inequalities in our systems and how they impact people’s daily lives. Despite the obstacles, he completed his Bachelor of Science at UC San Diego at the age of 21 and subsequently earned a master’s degree from CSU Northridge, becoming the first in his family to attain an advanced degree from an American institution. His personal history fuels his ambition to become a professor at an R1 University, developing policies that attract and retain Latino/x students to STEM fields and bolster science education pathways for all students.

Julie Huynh – Software Engineering
3rd Year at University of California, Irvine 

Julie will be attending UCI this fall as a Software Engineering major. She is studying to become an aspiring software engineer that can help make a difference in the technology department as a woman in STEAM. She is passionate about computer science and wants to teach programming to younger students. Besides from academics, she also loves learning about the beauty and fashion industry. In her spare time, she likes doing makeup and is practicing to be a makeup artist. She also looks through fashion editorials to research about designers and their collections.
