Raynel Sanchez, AS
Major: Computer Science/Mathematics
Describe yourself in three words: Creative, Considerate and Charismatic
What do you enjoy about being a Peer Leader?
“I enjoy when the students realize that math is actually easier than it looks. Students have profiled math as a stereotypical boring and complicated subject, but once they start to get that mindset out of the way, Math becomes a very sophisticated and useful tool they can use for almost anything. When approached this way, students are able to look past the obstacles and complexities of a problem and try their best to solve it.”
