LALS Peer Advisor Montserrat LopezLALS 2021 Peer Advisor Montserrat Lopez (she/her/hers) has been with the department since 2019. As a transfer student and double-major, she knows how important it is to seek out opportunities and make an academic plan right away. In her words:

"Hola, I am a 4th-year transfer student double-majoring in Latin American and Latinx Studies and Spanish Studies, concentration in literature. I'm interested in education, literature, art, human rights, learning about cultures, and researching ongoing political changes throughout Latin America. I am delighted to be a peer advisor, to help you achieve your goals and hear about your journey and your experiences in LALS. I'm excited to share my experiences such as working in the LALS department, publishing my art in TWANAS (a student-run magazine at UCSC), showcasing my art in February 2020's A Festival of Art and Solidarity: A POC showcase. In 2020-21 I will be working with the Research Center for the Americas' Human Rights Investigation Lab."
