UC Immigrant Legal Services Center Intern
Kate (she/her/hers) is a fourth year Sociology major pursuing a double minor in Applied Psychology and Professional Writing in Multimedia Communication. Undocumented Student Services has played a pivotal role in her college career as it provided her with a window opportunities for career-exploration and self-exploration when the doors were closed. From starting off as a Programming Intern to becoming a Lead Intern for USS, Kate is looking forward to transitioning into a UC Immigrant Legal Services Center Intern for the 2020-2021 academic year. When she is not in the office, you can catch her soaking up the warm sun out in Isla Vista or going on road trips with some friends. Something Kate would love to check off her college bucket-list before graduating UCSB is to pull an all-nighter at the library whether it’s for finals or for the fun of it.
