Alejandra Oceguera (she/her)
Hello! My name is Alejandra Oceguera (she/her). I am a junior majoring in psychology. I was born and raised in Galt, California. I am most passionate about neuropsychology in children and also the elderly. I hope to work with people of all backgrounds, especially the Latinx community. My favorite class so far has been Human Happiness! It really changed the way I view myself and my experiences, so I highly recommend it! Some of my other passions include the outdoors like hiking and camping, family time, friends, my pups, taking pictures, and working out. I also love watching sitcoms and trying out new foods around Berkeley! I’d love to chat about anything from interests in psychology to your favorite TV shows. Feel free to stop by my drop ins! :)
