Meet Perla Cerna! She's a 4th year psychology major with a minor in art! "I'm from Modesto in the Central Valley! I applied to different campuses but I really liked what UC Merced had to offer. The campus was small and the professors offered one-no-one help." "During my time here I joined Psy Chi. A psychology organization here on campus. "I really got involved in campus once I took my first art class here at UC Merced... I started taking art class after art class and along the way I got a lot of experience. Because of this, I was able to land an internship as the 20/20 cultural impact intern! My internship allows me to make bridges between the students at UC Merced and the 20/20 project.

As the cultural impact intern, I wanted to plan something innovative and creative for the campus. After talking to ASUCM and other organizations, we came up with lining the fences with chalk walls, so that way the students could fill it up with art and their ideas. More art is going to lined along the fencing and we're so excited! 
The only advice I can give another student is don't be afraid to try something new. I came in as a bio major and I knew it wasn't for me. I took one art class over the summer and that sparked me to take more art classes and to peruse it!" #IWILLatUCM  #ucmerced #lifeatucmerced #featurefriday @ohanaucm
