When it comes to grad photos, it’s all about capturing the right moment. For Alondra Montañez, that meant braving the wind for a photoshoot on campus.
Alondra, a Watsonville, CA native, chose CSU Monterey Bay for its programs and welcoming atmosphere. As a Social Work major, she found her passion for helping others at this college. Although she wasn’t a part of any fraternities or school groups, Alondra made the most of her time at CSU Monterey Bay. Her grad photos represent all the hard work and dedication that went into earning her degree.
For Alondra, her grad photos are not only a way to look back on her accomplishments, but also a motivation to continue to expand her education. She hopes to achieve her future goals, such as buying a house for herself and her parents. She also hopes to start her own business, and travel the world to explore different cultures.
When she’s not working towards her goals, Alondra can be found enjoying the summer sunshine with her family and friends. Whether it’s going to the beach, hiking, or just spending quality time with family, she loves to make the most of the warm weather.
In just three words, Alondra describes herself as determined, educated, and confident. Something that may surprise readers is that she is the first in her family to go to college and earn a degree. She is incredibly proud of this achievement.
Alondra’s favorite quote, “Todo esfuerzo tiene su recompensa, si se puede!” sums up her attitude towards life. She is determined to succeed.
Despite the windy conditions, Alondra’s photoshoot was a success. The stunning photos serve as a reminder of her time at CSU Monterey Bay and all that she has accomplished so far. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this determined, educated, and confident young woman.
