Destination College - Maverick Santos

Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Santos

I am the "New" Destination College Adviser.
My phone number is 760-261-7023 extension 35361

I look forward to working with the students at UP this year.

Quick Background about Myself: I was born in Guatemala and moved to North Hollywood, California when I was 11 years old. I attended John H. Francis Polytechnic High School and graduated in 2011. I continued my educational journey at the University of California, Berkeley and in the spring of 2016 received my B.A. in Cognitive Science. During my time at UC Berkeley I was involved in organizations that allowed me to work with students who were pursuing a college education. It was through these organizations that I found a passion for college access programs and being able to be a resource for students who want to pursue higher education.  

As a current UC Berkeley College Adviser Fellow my vision is to demystify higher education for the students. I will achieve this goal through a series of college preparation workshops and advising services to the students, parents, and campus community. The ultimate goal is to prepare students for their post-secondary educational goals and potential challenges they might face.
