Bergen Community College student, Kaylie Quezada, is studying political science to pursue a career in law. As an active student on campus, Quezada is a public relations representative for the Latin American Student Association (LASA), a judiciary member for the Student Government Association (SGA), and a member of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). She also plays track and field as a discus and a shot-put thrower. She works as a student staff member for the Office of Student Life. Quezada was one of three students chosen to attend and represent Bergen at the 2023 Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) Annual Capitol Forum in Washington, D.C.
“I decided to attend Bergen Community College due to its exemplary welcoming environment, diverse fields of study, affordability, quality education, and extracurricular activities and opportunities,” said Quezada. When asked about what made her successful at Bergen, Quezada said, “Sacrifice, staying involved, and being resourceful contributed to my academic success.” She continued, “Bergen Community College has exceptional professors and staff who have guided me academically, motivated me, and genuinely want to see me succeed.” She expects to graduate in 2024.
