Meet your Student-Ambassadors!




Languages: English, Nepali

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.

Greetings! I am Dave Cruz. This is my fourth semester at BCC and I intend to apply for transfer as an International Relations Major in Fall 2016. With my profound passion for leadership and making a positive impact in the society, I started getting involved on campus in Spring 2015. My goals for this academic year as an active advocate of student rights are as follows: 1) keeping students involved, informed and updated through social media and website, 2) representing students and advocating for their rights in shared governance and committee meetings both on-campus and at the state level, and 3) providing prospective and continuing students ease of access to BCC Student Services. Lastly, apart from being a full-time student, and Ambassador, I serve as Founder and President of BCC Filipino Students Alliance, ASBCC Senator, and enjoy singing as well as learning Spanish on my free time. “Philippians 4:13.”
