Kristal Silva (she/her/hers)

Hi everyone, my name is Kristal Silva! I am a senior studying Communications with a minor in Computer Programming. I joined the La CASA team in the Fall of 2019 (Halloween!). My experience so far has been amazing! Through La CASA, it has helped me with my transition as a transfer student by networking and making friends, while also being allowed to publicly advocate for my community. My favorite thing about La CASA has to be the memories I’ve created with my coworkers and students. It’s always so rewarding knowing I’m helping make a difference for students through representation and support. Speaking for all of the La CASA student team and my supervisor Leti, we look forward to all of the great things you have in store, and can’t wait to see what the year will bring!
