All about an Aztec: Angel Contreras

Name: Angel Contreras

Major: Chicano studies

Year: Junior

Student organization affiliations: First-Year Leadership Initiative

What inspired you to choose your major?

My culture inspired me to pick my major along with wanting to learn more about my culture and its beliefs and how much it has changed over the years. Ethic studies is an asset to a set of skills. My major has a lot of reading and writing that will help me when I become an attorney.

Describe your dream job

My dream job is to become an attorney in California. I would love to become an entertainment or sports lawyer. I am leaning more towards sports due to the fact that I love sports. I would love to work for the 49ers, Raiders, Warriors or even the San Francisco Giants.

What is your favorite Aztec memory?

It was when I was accepted from an appeal letter that I wrote to the appeal board. I was so happy when I saw that I was accepted to this beautiful campus. But it wasn’t the just the beauty that drew me in, it was also because of the Chicano studies department.

What is your personal motto?

“A positive mind is a motivated mind. So go motivate yourself and have a positive time!”

What is something you never leave home without?

My student business cards are the items that I never leave behind. You never know who you will run into when you are on the go, walking across campus or even downtown.
