Meet Our Near-Peer Ambassadors: Frida Gutierrez
During the 2023-24 school year, the Richmond Promise College Access Team will be joined in its work by Near-Peer Ambassadors. These members of our team are current RP Scholars who assist in the execution of in-classroom programming in local high schools. We are pleased to introduce you to one of our 2023-24 Ambassadors, Frida.
Q: First, some basic info. Tell us your name, current school, high school you graduated from and your major (or intended field of study).
A: Hello everyone my name is Frida Gutierrez, I graduated from Kennedy High School in 2020, and I currently am a student at Sacramento State majoring in kinesiology.
Q: What are you most looking forward to about being a RP Near-Peer Ambassador and what are you hoping to get from the experience?
A: Something I am looking forward to is helping out students the best I can and being there for them as much as I can. What I am hoping to get out of this is more experience speaking in front of people.
Q: If you were going to give advice to a high school senior about going through the college application process, what would it be?
A: The best advice I can give regarding the application process would be to complete it as soon as you can and not put it off for too long. The sooner you get it in, the better.
Q: What’s the best part about being in college/what should a high school senior look forward to?
A: The best part of being in college is the experiences you get, meeting new people/lots of different professors, making friends to be with you throughout your whole four years, exploring places you’ve never seen around campus and learning all the new things the college world has to teach you.
Q: What are you most looking forward to after college?
A: What I am most looking forward to after college is going on to medical school and becoming a physician assistant.
