Sandy Castillo

Cal State San Bernardino

Sandy Castillo is currently on her senior year at California State University San Bernardino. She is a returning student with vocational background in pharmacy. She is expected to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in psychology during Spring of 2023. She is currently working as a student mentor on campus and will apply to graduate school in the fall to continue her academic journey. Her philosophy is that education is essentially important for human growth, and personal development. Education in general is important to her and especially education in mental health. She believes it is necessary for all communities to learn more about mental health and remove the stigma that some cultures may have about mental health. That is one of the reasons why she is a returning student and chose psychology as her major. Sandy’s goal is to one day spread the knowledge gained and share it with those in underserved communities, like the one she grew up in.
