Charlize Villasenor ’23

El Paso, Texas

Learning languages, working out, midnight breakfast, 2000s R&B

Hello! My name’s Charlize and I’m from El Paso, Texas. (Shout out to all my fellow Obies from the desert!) I went from being a short drive to the US-Mexico border to being a short drive to the US-Canada border.

I’m an intended Economics & East Asian Studies major hoping to go to law school after I graduate. I also currently participate in La Alianza Latinx and Barefoot Dialogues as well as work in Stevie.

Outside of the classroom, I like drinking chai tea lattes at Azariah’s, reading translated books, and hanging out with friends. I’m a strong believer in the power of words so hopefully you can find something interesting or useful in my blogs!

Thank you for reading my blogs, and if you see me around, say hi!

It was a bit of a weird feeling at first, to feel split between two places over 1,400 miles apart, but I’m grateful to have a community in both El Paso and Oberlin.
