5. A random fact about you!

Hi all, my name is Maya Serna and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am currently a full time student at the University of California – Santa Barbara. I’m a third year majoring in political science and minoring in poverty, inequality, and social justice. Along with school, I help run a small plant business and work part time for State Farm as a social media manager. I am most interested in the juvenile justice system, restorative justice, reentry programs, current public policy changes regarding the criminal justice system, and food justice/food sovereignty. I plan to go to law school or pursue my masters in public policy following graduation so this program is a great foundational point I can build upon!

Random Fact: I also have a deep passion for cooking and am always thinking about going to culinary school instead of law school or getting my masters.
