Jonathan Tejeda

Class of 2019

I am a first generation student currently attending California State, Northridge and a graduate student majoring in geography and environmental studies. I have prior experience working as a forester for Southern California Edison and as a water resource intern for the U.S. Forest Service. Aside from my experience and educational background, my ethnicity is Mexican American, and both my parents emigrated from Mexico. My family is my inspiration, as they have overcame several hardships while seeking a better life. I am truly motivated to continue developing as an emerging professional, and I am blessed to be given this opportunity from LHIP and the National Park Service. This opportunity opens a new chapter in my life and I will enjoy my journey along the way, thank you!
