Erika Rivera
Arbuckle - Pierce High
UC Davis 2018 Ag Economics


I’m Erika Rivera and I graduated from Pierce High school located in a small town called Arbuckle. I was born and raised in a rural community where agriculture and farming industries form the backbone of our county. I love this environment and for this reason I want to study Agriculture Economy. I would love to help the farming industry thrive by optimizing agricultural markets; and what better way to do this than by obtaining a graduates degree from the University of California Davis, which is currently ranked second at the national level in the field of Agricultural Economics. I have enjoyed my first quarter at UC Davis and look forward to the rest of my journey here! Good luck to all The Avalos Scholars and I hope to cross paths with you all.
