Adriana Andrade is a fourth year Business Administration major with a minor in Political Science. Adriana was born in Mexico and has been raised in SoCal since the age of three. Having been raised in the city of El Monte, Adriana grew up with a strong bond and respect for her Latinx immigrant community. This, and other personal experiences, instilled in her a strong need to serve the immigrant, undocumented, and other underserved communities. It was evident that there was a

This role was a very fulfilling experience as she was able to serve a community she understood personally. This role allowed her to expand her view of the student body -- although students may be challenged under similar situations, each student's experience is very different.
Throughout her work at Long Beach State, Adriana has been motivated by her upbringing and her community. She makes it clear that it has definitely taken a village to get her to where she is today, so it’s natural that she believes it is necessary to always bridge opportunities to those who come after us by giving advice, supporting, and opening doors for others.
As ASI Treasurer, Andrade hopes to continue bridging opportunities for students and give them more access to tools that will help ensure their financial and professional success during and post CSULB. During her term she will seek creative ways to help students, student organizations, and students overall to seek to improve the CSULB experience. Adriana looks forward to working alongside the executive team to bring forth the advocacy and support that the student
