About: Guadalupe Mejia

I am a first-generation college student attending Loyola Marymount University, where I will be a junior this fall. Majoring in History and Communication Studies, I aspire to use the knowledge I acquire from both fields to work towards the betterment of underrepresented communities in higher education. Through my experience as a Getty Multicultural Undergraduate intern, I have started a bucket list of all the museums and cultural sites in L.A. I want to explore by the end of the year.

I looked at my companions, asking them “Was that it? Did we miss it?” That was it, but we hadn’t missed it at all.
