Jordy Cardenas

HI! I’m Jordy (she/her/ella) and I am so ecstatic to be returning to UCI and Campuswide Honors Program as an Advisor! I was born and raised in a small border town of Calexico, CA and grew up dreaming of being the first in my family to attend a university. I am proud to say I achieved that dream here at UCI in 2016 with a Bachelor’s in Criminology, Law and Society and minor in Psychology and Social Behavior. I was invited to join CHC as an incoming first-year student and from day one of Orientation, knew that UCI and CHC would be life changing. Since then, I have been honored to be given so many opportunities to grow into the person I am today and be able to return to campus to serve CHC students with the same heart & dedication that was shown to me while here.
A peek into my heart and you’ll see my lovely family, Disneyland, boba, Major League Baseball, hand embroidery, Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, ocean views, the Calm App, hugs, my Abuelita’s Chile Rellenos, and countless cups of coffee.
