You and the University share responsibility for your education. Our most successful students recognize the responsibility they must assume for their own progress. At UC Berkeley, you have the freedom to make independent decisions about your academic career. With this freedom comes the need to be responsible not only about your academics, but also about the administrative duties you need to complete in order to graduate.
Year and Major: Third, Linguistics major (Music and Applied Languages Studies minor)
About Me: Hello! My name is Karina and I am a junior majoring in Linguistics. I'm from the Silicon Valley, though I was born in Switzerland and moved here when I was 6 years old. In my free time I love to bake, and I teach the Intro to Baking DeCal! I play the flute, as well as the piccolo in Cal Band. This is my second year as a Peer Adviser.
Year and Major: 3rd and Economics and Global Studies
About Me: Hey! I'm Kinya from Kenya. I'm a second year hoping to double major in Economics and Global Studies. I'd like to get into the financial world and eventually move to working for the Ministry of Finance back in Kenya. I believe that college should be a wholesome experience - learning about yourself, making steps to better yourself and meeting and working with new people is what it is about. I'm excited to help y'all get the best of this experience!

What is your approach to advising? My approach is student-centered coupled with providing excellent service to students to ensure that I answer all of their questions, provide support, guidance, resources, and LOVE. Also, I encourage students to be self-directed to help them achieve their goals.
