Born and raised in Hayward, California, Eduardo is currently an undergraduate student at California State University, East Bay. He is expected to begin his fourth year this fall and graduate May 2021. His current mixed-methods research project examines how racial and socio-economic experiences shape student considerations in attending community colleges or 4-year institutions after high school. He has been a long-time volunteer for local community organizations in Hayward that focus on meal service and community outreach. He hopes to pursue graduate studies after college.
