Juanita Preciado

Influenced by her hard-working immigrant family and a teacher who taught her to set high self-expectations, it’s not a shock that this first-generation college graduate has set a very high career expectation: "Do research that will shift cultural beliefs". Juanita is interested in changing perceptions of how parents view mental health and fatalistic views of cancer. 
Juanita received her bachelors in Psychology from the Universit of California, Riverside and is currently persuing her Masters in Public Health from Claremont Graduate University.
"The [Éxito!] program enabled me to consider PhD possibilities that otherwise I would have not thought about," said Juanita.
