Name: Andrea Sanchez
Title/role: Administrative Assistant
How long have you lived in Baja California Sur?
My parents moved here almost 10 years ago so I would visit them every vacation I had from school. I am originally from California and moved down to BCS after I finished college in December of 2018.
What does your work involve at the Center?
I am Idalia’s (the Center Director’s) assistant. I help her do all the behind the scenes tasks that keep the center flowing smoothly.
What is your background?
I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology from California State University, Fresno.
What are your favorite things about the Todos Santos community?
This community sees the opportunity to grow and they take it. It is a community with a rich history that can also be considered a melting pot, as there are so many different cultures living in this small town.
Is there anything you want people to know about CSU’s involvement in Todos Santos?
CSU has brought great opportunities by offering free programs for the community, especially the children. Programs such as Kids Do It All and the English program are giving these children the opportunity to grow. Since they are the future of this town, I hope they can invoke a change for more growth here in Todos Santos.
