Lizette Sainz, Staff Writer

My name is Lizette Sainz, I'm a current student at Cerritos College, my plan is to transfer this Fall Semester to USC or CSUF to obtain my Journalism (BA).

I want to work and enjoy my career sometime soon for the news channel and for the WWE World Wrestling Entertainment as a reporter.

I would like to come back to Cerritos college and finished my classes to obtain my Anthropology A.A. and Administration of Justice A.A.

As a hobby, I'm at the gym three times a week an hour with my personal trainer. Currently I have no life, with school and work there’re not enough hours in a day.
