Meet the Ambassadors

Matea Berria

Hometown: Fruitland, ID

Major: Exercise Science and Health

Minor: Pre-Health Professions Studies

Year in School: Junior

Activities: Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority

Why I wanted to become a student ambassador:

I wanted to become a student ambassador for the College of Education because I am passionate about the importance of pursuing higher education, especially here at the University of Idaho where so many areas of study are offered. The College of Education prepares students for many different careers, such as teaching, athletic training, physical/occupational therapy, medical school, etc. My hope is to help direct students into an area of study they are most passionate about. With the endless support from the staff within the College of Education, I was able to find that passion in my own studies as an Exercise Science and Health major.
