My name is Lorena Aceves. I was born in Ingelwood, CA, but raised in Gilbert, AZ. I am currently a senior at the University of Arizona. I am on the path to graduate with a bachelor's in Family Studies and Human Development. I plan to pursue a PhD in FSHD or Higher Education, with the aspiration to one day become a professor at a university. Being an FSHD major has allowed me to learn the value of the family as a whole and how you cannot just study an individual, their family system is an important component for who they are and what affects them! I really enjoy interactions with people and the friendly environment within FSHD that one day as professor, I hope to very involved and mentor undergraduates.
