Katherine is from South gate which is near Long Beach, so I asked her why she chose CSULB for college. She said it was the simplest and easiest thing to do; to stay close to home and be familiar with the area and the people. Her favorite thing about Long beach is the nature because it is calm and quiet especially in between classes. Her hobbies include reading, watching movies, and traveling. She also loves being out in nature. Her family as a whole does a lot of traveling in the summer, and they have been to Northern California, Cancun, and Alaska. Katherine is a first year and is undeclared, but she’s thinking about going into creative writing. One thing I noticed about Katherine is that she also likes to change her hair, and when I asked her about it she said that if she had the money and resources to change it a lot, she would. She likes to experiment with color, which makes her a perfect fit for art 110.
