Nicol Hernandez

Hello to all! My name is Nicol Hernandez and I am a freshman at CAL! I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. My roots come from Oaxaca, Mexico, which is where my parents were born. I like to listen to Ozuna and I like watching Netflix-made movies. I am the middle child; I have an older sister who is 24, and a younger sister who is 15. My parents are my heros and my motivation. My intended major is Public Health. Within Public Health, I am interested in Health Administration and/or Public Health Education. As a member of a community of color, I have seen the medical/health disadvantages we encounter on a daily basis. I want to help reduce health disparity and promote health equality and equity. I am excited to see how much I learn and grow as a CHE intern!
