    I joined the AIO team because I wanted to establish my personal skills that I could only obtain from this team. I also wanted to join for another reason which was to remind myself daily what integrity is in academic fields. Meeting all the peer educators and staffs in the office really brought me to be more involved with the school for the first time in my three years of attending UCSD, so I really appreciate the people who are working with me.

    I became a peer educator because I wanted to be an active leader and participant in the UCSD community. Another reason for becoming a peer educator was to teach other students of the importance of academic integrity. Thirdly, I really enjoy working with a diverse group of students and getting to hear their stories. I can relate to most of my students from a personal perspective.

    I wanted to get involved on campus and help other students in some way. As a peer educator, I can help students better understand what academic integrity is and why it's important now during our time at UCSD and later on in the future.

    At first, I decided to become a peer educator because I wanted to get more involved around campus. After doing some research, I liked what the Integrity Peer Educators were doing for other students and knew that I wanted to be a part of it. Helping others is something I've always enjoyed doing, and as a peer educator, I get to help fellow peers turn a mistake into a learning experience. Having integrity is not just about making sure you don’t get an academic integrity violation in college, it’s about being true to who you are as an individual and how you would like others to see you through your own work. Destroying that preconceived notion that “everyone does it” has been a huge motivating factor as to why I’m still a peer educator because everyone does not do it and I want to be proud of being a UC San Diego graduate.

    I joined the AI Peer Educator family because I wanted to become a resource to others and help promote a campus culture in which students place strong value in maintaining integrity in their everyday lives - academic, personal, and professional aspects. I also love the office atmosphere and the belief that good people make mistakes too, and we then try and grow from it!

Now that I'm a peer educator, I've fallen in love with the family and supportive community that I've become a part of. I will establish what integrity means in my own life, and show people how cool it is to stick to one's values.

    I was first an undergrad panel member of the Academic Integrity Review Board. As getting more and more involved with the Academic Integrity Office, I started to wonder what it is like for students after the review meeting. As a result, I joined as a Peer Educator and have been helping students through advising hours and seminars. I am grateful that I had past experience in review process, in that way, I can explain the whole picture of panel review to students effectively. To me, integrity is not just about school work, but also is about core values that matter to us the most and how we uphold those values.

    I became a peer educator because promoting integrity is important but hard. It is avoided and repressed in our daily conversations. I wanted to take up this challenge and be part of the change.
