Today I received two phone calls; I was granted acceptance to the Masters of Education in Teaching of Secondary Mathematics at Stanford and USC. I am still a little in disbelief, but I’m so happy right now! I heard news of both within 10 minutes of each other with my Shadow kids! So great they could share in the happiness. A huge thank you to everyone who encouraged me and helped me get where I am. Can’t wait to take my own pictures and explore Stanford during Spring Break! #blessed#usc#stanford#ucla#ucberkeley#knightsdoitright
“Sproul Plaza features a central strip, with open pockets on the periphery. Parallel lines of trees delineate a bustling, boulevard-like promenade. On the outskirts, a circular fountain disrupts the linear highway and encourages leisurely congregation. The complex functions as a vibrant hub of student life, using space to facilitate both movement through the university and intellectual and social cross-pollination. The landscape empties directly onto Bancroft and Telegraph, a public intersection at the heart of downtown Berkeley. Rather than building an entryway at this edge, the architect relegated Sather Gate to the space behind Sproul Plaza. As a result, no physical barrier distinguishes “on-campus” from “off.” This spatial fluidity provides students and non-students an open forum of discussion, debate, recreation, and expression. By blurring distinctions between college and community space, Sproul Plaza’s design prompts active participation from an inclusive public.” Lucy Portnoff, Art History ‘20
So I posted this on my story a couple days ago but posting here now! I'm going to clarify what the benefits of an AP test is. In college you have to take a certain amount of General Education classes (GEs) in the topics of humanities, social sciences and natural and physical sciences. For my AP history classes I fulfilled many lower division (freshman and sophomore) humanities classes. Had I not passed the AP test, I would have had to take world history, American history and government in college. Instead I don't have to now. My English AP tests covered one of my English requirements in college, so instead of taking 2 college English classes, I only took one. If I had taken AP bio, chem, environmental, physics etc. I would've been able to skip a science GE. And so forth such as a foreign language requirement. So definitely take the AP test! It'll save you lots of time. My friends who did not take AP had more packed semesters trying to complete their GEs that I didn't have to do. Essentially I took less classes in college than the average person. DM me or comment if you have any questions!!
Walking through this institution I couldn't stop thinking about all the challenges I faced as undergrad, from not being academically prepare to start as freshmen, to being (often) the only person of color in my film classes, to even feel frighten to go discussion sections because of my thick accent....but despite all of that, I also couldn't help to feel a sense of pride as I can now say I graduated from the #1 public univeristy in the world! And look at me now, holding my master thesis film in from it of the Campanile ... we have come a long way fam, a looong way... #ucberkeley#proud#alumni#immigrant#orgulloso#filmaker#director

In 1974, author, social critic, and civil rights leader James Baldwin delivered a series of lectures at UC Berkeley. An excerpt of Baldwin speaking at Berkeley in ’79 is online at http://bit.ly/2HFk6KU (link in profile).
With only one day left of our crowdfunding campaign, we are just $499 dollars away from reaching our $30,000 goal!
The Human Rights Center has been on the Berkeley campus for nearly 25 years, moving from Stephens Hall to Telegraph Avenue and recently to Simon Hall. This year, we will move into our own space on campus, creating a permanent home for the center--our first "home for human rights at Berkeley." Our Human Rights Investigations Lab alone now has 80 students from 21 areas of study who speak 31 languages! This home will provide space for our growing staff, visiting scholars, colleagues, friends, and students.
Thanks to all who have already given. If you haven't had a chance, we hope you will consider making a gift of any size to this crowdfunding campaign today. Thank you! To donate, please visit crowdfund.berkeley.edu (link in bio)

Every quarter, Professor Marc Sandalow holds a fake live TV exercise in his Media and Politics Research Seminar. During the exercise, students simulated a political news interview to experience the thrill and fear of punditry. Students presented their own research with topics ranging from the medical marijuana to nuclear firearms. #academicinsights#was#washingtona> #washington #dc#ucdc#mediaclass#ucsc#uci#ucberkeley 1) Rose from @uci@ucirvine talks about Washington accuracy in movies and on TV.
