Peer Advisor

Hello Everyone! My name is Jason. I am a transfer student veteran in my last year as a Psychology major with a minor in Counseling and Social Change.

I became a Peer Advisor to ultimately provide service to my community, but also enhance the necessary skills needed to succeed as a helping professional. My career goal is to be a community college advisor/counselor, and earn a license that allows me to work with individuals struggling with

mental health. 

 Fun Fact: I love to travel, but I cannot stand flying.

Rosa Buenrostro

Peer Advisor

Hey y’all! My name is Rosa and I’m a fourth year student majoring in Psychology with a minor in Counseling and Social Change. I transferred from Cuyamaca College in the fall of 2018.

I wanted to become a peer advisor because I thought it was the perfect opportunity to be more involved on campus and I have a passion for helping people. In the future, I aspire to be
a social worker or a community college counselor because I believe people were placed in my life to help me grow personally and professionally, and I would like to be that person for someone else.

Fun Fact: I love taking pictures of beautiful things.

Dawn Freeman

Peer Advisor

Hey everyone! My name is Dawn and I’m a 4th year senior here at SDSU. I’m studying Psychology with a minor in Counseling & Social Change.

I applied to be a Peer Advisor for the minor because I’m a big fan of giving back, & this is a great opportunity to do so as well as further develop my leadership skills. In the future, I hope to become a School Counselor & a Mental Health Counselor specifically for adolescents who have anxiety or depression. 

Fun Fact: I was in the audience for the TV show Big Brother!

Hello! My name is Jun. I am a 4th year transfer student majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies (RWS, Sociology, and CSP).
