Summit’s own Karla Aparicio recently participated in a UCLA Career Day panel to share her experiences as a first-generation alumna, as well as advice on starting a career in the communications field. During the daylong event, Karla hosted a workshop for first-generation Latina students who are part of the non-profit organization, Hermanas Unida, of which she is a statewide board member. In the workshop, the group talked about activities to engage in outside of work to help relieve stress and enhance physical and mental health.
“Creating bridges for first-gen students is so vital to making sure they have the tools they need for professional success. I am so happy to continue being a resource and to help provide the mentorship that they need.” - Karla Aparicio
