Hello, I am Reshu. I was born and raised in mountainous country Nepal and currently studying as a first semester student here at Berkeley City College. Being a part of student ambassador program is a great honor and privilege for me. I am able to help people every single day in clarifying their confusions about the programs and services here at BCC. With that, I was not only given a chance to assist them, but also educated and benefited me to be a considerate individual. As an Ambassador, I shall always be ready to share my knowledge about Berkeley City College and help guide students reach their educational goal. I’m glad to be a part of the team so, please do stop by if you ever need help.

My name is Andrea Carballo. Having been born and raised in Lima, Peru, my journey as a student at Berkeley City College has been an enriching and helpful intercultural experience. I feel that Berkeley City College has provided me with the necessary tools to pursue my educational goals. Business and Economics are my intended fields of study. The support I have received encouraged me to join the Ambassador’s team as a way of giving back what was offered to me and I have enjoyed every single day of my journey here. It is very rewarding to be able to guide and motivate students to go after their own educational goals while I try to achieve mine. I look forward to a great year, full of new experiences, helping and learning from as many students as I can.
