Words of wisdom for future transfer students:
"Don’t let people’s sometimes negative ideas about transfer students affect you whatsoever. I earned a 22k scholarship because I was a transfer student! I almost didn’t apply for UC’s at all because, as a working student paying out of pocket, I was scared I could not afford it and that a UC would not be the place for me. But I am so glad I didn’t limit myself."
Career and future goals:
Riley would love to eventually become an English professor, and is currently thinking of teaching abroad somewhere!.
