A CAPA Alumni Interview: Edgar Trujillo
Meet Edgar Trujillo, a Sociology major from UC Davis who studied abroad in London during spring 2016. Below, he talks about how his internship led him to his current job in higher education, how he stayed active abroad, and how his experience led to positive changes in his confidence and ability to be independent.
CW: Tell us a bit about yourself.
EDGAR TRUJILLO: I grew up in the Monterey Bay of California and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from UC Davis in 2016. Currently, I work for UC Davis as a Program Coordinator for the UC Davis Center for Human Services. I strive every day to provide human service professionals the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to best serve their communities by coordinating the administration of our skill-building workshops. Besides my work, I love to take long drives and hike the breathtaking wonders of California’s National Parks.
In my senior year of college, I came to the realization that if I ever wanted to travel across the globe, I would have to do it with haste. As a young person, I enjoy pursuing situations that provide me a more cohesive understanding of the world, and living for three months in the UK sounded like the perfect opportunity for me.
