11AUGUST 2017 | Andrea CamarenaI grew up with two major factors affecting my everyday life: I was born in Mexico and I grew up with an abusive father. Although the two don’t resemble each other on any level and may not even seem like such crucial aspects of one’s life, if I were to be stripped down to my most primal form, those two would be the two single factors that have led me to where I am.Having come from a country like Mexico and jumping into a completely new culture left a voidinside of me that led to my yearning for a new connection to my home country, and to create anew connection to my new home. Ever since I was a little girl I was bullied for being the odd girlout, whether it was in Mexico for having had come from the U.S. or in the U.S. for being fromMexico. So moving here I had a mission, and that was to create my own fate and to give othersthe strength to do so as well. I have been blessed with opportunities to make an impact beyond my direct community andinto other schools around San Diego. I began my impact on my campus by joining UC Pals -apeer connecting, tutoring, and supporting club- as a sophomore, then fell in love with the workand co-founded The UCHS Anti-Defamation League Club after the ADL came to my campus totrain fifteen students and me to become certified peer trainers. Through this new anti-bullyingand anti-hate club, I facilitated over a dozen peer trainings with students throughout our campus,and even trained the 83 teachers of the UC High Staff and the 50 teachers of the local middleschool. This club gave commencement to the “No Hate” movement on my campus and in mycommunity. I was inspired to begin this movement after experiencing first hand the effects ofhate in one’s life, being bullied as a child and having lost a peer to the same kind of hate. It hassince become my passion and, now being equipped with ADL’s teachings, I am determined tospread my knowledge in college, the work space, and all communities around me. Through these two clubs, I was able to reach out to teens, kids, and even adults, helping eachdiscover great new sides of themselves and how to make a passionate impact on their school andcommunity as well. Meanwhile, I worked alongside my school counselor and psychologist totrain other students in my high school to become peer counselors and tutors. After accomplish-ing the teacher trainings and over a dozen teen trainings, I worked alongside my school coun-selor and the Vice President of my other clubs to found UCHS MEChA, a club for Mexican andChicano students. MEChA opened new perspectives to me, as it is a completely different field ofcommunity involvement than what I have ever done before. It gave me a new sense of pride tobe Mexican, and having been born and raised in both distinct cultures came to be advantageouswhen bringing back the same kind of pride to the Mexicans and Chicanos in this country.Venturing outside of the peer supporting field on my campus, I became a certified UCSD Hos-pital volunteer. As a CallPool volunteer, I was in charge of running labs and helping patients in,now, three connecting hospitals with a total of 17 floors. Unfortunately, after my parents’ separa-tion I became the household’s second income and that took first priority for my free time outsideof school. Although keeping up with a college class, four AP classes, and working over 20 hourseach week absorbed all my time, the one thing I could not drop was my ADL club. I proudlyworked alongside the National Organization’s San Diego director, my school staff, and my clubVice President to certify 40 new students, including 10 incoming freshman from the middleschool, to become UC High School’s new generation of ADL Peer Trainers. Although my high school career ended upon graduation, my journey does not end there. Myclub co-founder and I will now focus on further training our new generation of peer-trainers,and continue on the new “No Place for Hate” missions we closely planned with the school faculty.This direct impact is what continues to motivate me to continue to seek out new opportunities tomake my community a better place.

If you’re considering retiring in the near future, you’ve probably heard or read that you need about 70% of your end salary to live comfort- ably in retirement. This estimate is frequently repeated … but that doesn’t mean it is true for everyone. It may not be true for you. Consider the following factors: Health. Most of us will face a major health problem at some point in our lives. Think, for a moment,about the costs of prescription medicines, and recurring treatment for chronic ailments. These costs canreally take a bite out of retirement income, even with a great health care plan. Heredity. If you come from a family where people frequently live into their 80s and 90s, you may liveas long or longer. Imagine retiring at 55 and living to 95 or 100. You would need 40-45 years of steadyretirement income. Portfolio. Many people retire with investment portfolios they haven’t reviewed in years, with assetallocations that may no longer be appropriate. New retirees sometimes carry too much risk in theirportfolios, with the result being that the retirement income from their investments fluctuates wildlywith the vagaries of the market. Other retirees are super-conservative investors: their portfolios are sorisk-averse that they can’t earn enough to keep up with even moderate inflation, and over time, theyfind they have less and less purchasing power. Spending habits. Do you only spend 70% of your salary? Probably not. If you’re like many Ameri-cans, you probably spend 90% or 95% of it. Will your spending habits change drastically once youretire? Again, probably not. Will you have enough? When it comes to retirement income, a casual assumption may prove to bewoefully inaccurate. You won’t learn how much retirement income you’ll need by reading this article.Consider meeting with a qualified financial professional who can help estimate your lifestyle needs andshort-term and long-term expenses.
