Girls Can Be Heroes!

Carla Plaza is a source of inspiration for so many women at UC, Irvine who work very hard every day to achieve their dreams of graduating from college. She’s a single mother to her 19 year old son, works at UC, Irvine in the F.J. Ayala School of Biological Sciences and has served as a soldier and medic to the US Army. It is only fit for someone as strong-willed as her to apply for medical school and aspire to be a physician that would be of service to the community where she will practice. While being busy reaching out to her goals, she has helped various organizations such as Girls Rising in their efforts to promote women empowerment and is a Big Sister to a 14-year old girl with the organization Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Orange County, CA.
