Catalina’s Bio

Your major: Writing Studies

Your hometown: West Valley City

Where do you live now? West Jordan

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about the local music scene right here in Salt Lake City. I tend to also be pretty passionate about my current undergrad research project about ChatGPT and Student Writing.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? My favorite class at SLCC is my ENGL 1100 – Diversity in Popular US Literature: Queer Literature.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? I never have been told I look like any celebrities so for fun casting I would say Selena Gomez.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years I hope to be about ready to graduate from a University with my Bachelor’s in Political Science and a Minor in Writing Studies.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? I always wished I was a witch and could do really fancy spells in a cauldron.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: Despite my big personality I like to call myself an extroverted introvert because I actually get pretty nervous about meeting new people even though I love to.
