My name is Suzanna Sotelo and I am a second year, undeclared student at UCR. I am from Emporia, Kansas, but I have been raised in Riverside as far back as I can remember. I joined Beta mostly because I wanted to create meaningful friends with people who would help me succeed and have fun in the process. I also wanted to make a difference in my community. I'd been doing 100 hours of community service a year for school since 7th grade and when my mom's health problems became worse and worse, I stopped doing community service and felt like something was missing. Beta has contributed to my college experience in a positive way because now I can make friendships in any situation I'm thrown in.
