Alan is in a red Palomar Promise shirt walking and smiling in the sun.

My name is Alan Mediorreal, I was born in Colombia and immigrated to the United States of America at the age of 6. Learned English fluently along with Spanish as it is my first language. Graduated High School in San Jose and then joined the United States Marine Corps , serving 4 years honorably. I also deployed to Australia to train and help forge a stronger relationship with our Australian counterparts. After I got out of the Marines I enrolled in Palomar College, majoring in Political Science, while also minoring in Spanish and Geography. I will be transferring to Cal State San Marcos to progress more in my educational goals. I’m aiming for working with the State Department regarding foreign relation in Latin America. Palomar is a great place to start your educational journey.

Chanti is in a red Palomar Promise shirt. She had rainbow dreadlocks and is smiling. My name is Chauntrell “Chanti” Turner. I graduated high school in 2011 from Oceanside High and live in Murrieta right now. I am a current student at Palomar College and California State University San Marcos. I have already graduated with an Associate’s in General Studies: Art and Humanities and University Studies. Currently I am working towards a Bachelor’s in Art, Media, Design while pursuing an Associate’s degree in Three-Dimensional Art with an emphasis in Glass and Three-Dimensional Art with an emphasis in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. I am a member of the Umoja Program and Vice President of the Umoja Club at Palomar. I hope to become an Art Therapist to help those find their voice and be able to express themselves through art, whatever medium works best for them. Also, to show and give them hope that it is possible to overcome your traumas and grow from them. I want to be able to have a studio that offers not only offers the basics like painting, drawing, ceramic, beading, etc. But also one that provides glassblowing, stained glass, metalsmithing, gardening, photography, and so many other things. I want workshops or classes where people can come and have a workshop dedicated to their specialty. For example, if someone is into African dance, ballet, music, or anything I don’t already have, they want to offer a three-week class. I’d make it so my clients could sign up for any workshop I have and be a part of it for their healing journey. I would like to see art therapy focus more on specific demographic groups, people with particular mental or physical illnesses, or those with social anxiety than psychotherapy because it can and will help them heal from their problems more so than talk therapy. This is something I am passionate about, and I want to be able to make this dream a reality one day.
