Director of Information Technology
Major: Intended Business Administration
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA & Oaxaca, Mexico
Hello! My name is Ashley Santiago, I am a sophomore at UC Berkeley intending to major in Business Administration. I am from South Central Los Angeles but consider Oaxaca, Mexico, to be my home. I moved to the United States in 2016 in search of better education and never did I imagine that after four years I would be studying at UC Berkeley.
Once at the University when searching for a community on campus, it was challenging to find a place where I belonged, but once I found out about LBSA I knew that I had found my new familia at Cal because of how welcomed and accepted I felt. After attending the LBSA kickoff I became involved with the organization by interning under the Executive Administration and Professional Development committee. Now, I am happy to say that this semester I will be serving LBSA as the Director of Information Technology and as a supportive member to the LBSA familia.
LBSA has played a big role during my college journey. I am grateful for all the amazing people I have met and the immense support that I have received, as well as all the academic & professional resources that have contributed to my growth. In the same way I hope to correspond by providing support to LBSA members to the best of my abilities. I am here to help and lend a hand when needed, please feel free to connect and reach out. I am excited to meet and chat with you once we get back to campus!
