Alumni Spotlight: Christina Ruiz '19 '20
Christina once thought higher education was unattainable, but she's now attending Yale School of Medicine to become a Physician Assistant. After having children and navigating community college as a first-generation college student, Ruiz enrolled at CSUSM in 2017. Ruiz graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor’s in Kinesiology. She continued at CSUSM and earned a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) in 2020. She had multiple roles in healthcare and served the San Diego Latinx community, including as a Spanish medical interpreter. She quickly realized there was a need for more Latinx healthcare providers. Ruiz thanks CSUSM for helping her get to where she is now.
“Asking for help impacted my time as a student greatly. I joined EOP, applied for scholarships, saw counselors, applied for living assistance, went to office hours & tutoring, and made friends with peers. It’s because of my community I am where I am today.”
