The degree of

Master of Library and Information Science

Virtual Convocation


Current residence: San Leandro, CA, US

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

I've always wanted to be a librarian. Going to library school made me realize that I'm especially interested in archives and special collections.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

My family was my core support. But my classmates, and former iSchool students were always there for me. I've never met such an incredibly positive group of people before.

While in the program, I met classmates from:

As far away as Fullerton, CA. Just kidding! I know there are students from all over, but the most geographically remote classmate that I got to know was from Canada.

What I liked best about online learning was:

The flexibility.

What I enjoyed most about my experience at the SJSU School of Information was:

Getting involved with student organizations and making connections with my classmates and professors. I also took some amazing classes that knocked my socks off.

I plan to use my degree to:

Get a job in the archives. I'm particularly interested in oral history, media preservation, and community archives.

Now that I have completed the program, I'm most looking forward to:

Seeing what comes next and getting a full-time job!
