Hi! My name is Tana Acosta, and I am a Secondary Education major here at RACC. I’m hoping to transfer to a four-year university to pursue dual majors in English and Music Education. Aside from being an Ambassador, I participate in the RACCy Olympics, RACC’s Leadership and Advantage Programs, I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa, and I perform on campus at certain events. Outside of RACC, I am a singer/songwriter, and I love creating music. I also love watching movies, playing video games, and hanging out with my friends. Being an Ambassador has had such an amazing impact on me. I came to RACC knowing no one, and now I know almost everyone there is to know on campus. I will be graduating in May of 2016, but until then, I plan to continue helping new students feel at home here at RACC just like I do.
Bonjour! Je m’appelle Rachel Chlebowski, but I prefer to go by Lola. I began as a Raven Ambassador in June 2015, right after high school, and I love it! I am a Creative Writing Transfer student, but I am also very interested in everything French. I plan on going to a four-year college after RACC and dual majoring in Creative Writing and French. Hopefully, one day, I’ll be sipping a piña colada on a tropical beach writing my next best-seller. However, while I’m waiting for my novels to take off, I would love to be a professor in either French or writing.
Hello! My name is Valeria Peña Dominguez. I moved to Reading PA almost four years ago. I graduated from Reading High School last year. I am trying to complete an Associate’s Degree in Science, and I plan on transferring to Penn State after RACC in order to pursue a degree in Biology. This is my first year working as a Raven Ambassador, and honestly I love being an Ambassador because I have the privilege to interact with people from different backgrounds and assist them when needed.
I just completed my freshman year here at RACC. During this time at RACC, I have been able to devote my time and energy to participate in clubs on campus. Right now, I am the Vice-President of the Multicultural & International Club, and I am part of the Leadership program as well. I love to be involved in my community, college activities, and gain experience that will help me grow, not only as a student, but as a person as well, which will allow me to help myself, my family, and my community.
Hi! My name is Bethany Ayers Fisher. I am a Science Transfer Major planning on majoring in Chemistry and Environmental Science. I am also the Secretary of RACC’s Environmental Club, Operation Green. I am originally from Mentor, Ohio, and still love my Cleveland Indians. My interests include gardening, traveling, reading and keeping my Maine Coon cat Murphy happy. I have 3 grown children, two of whom have chosen military careers. I became an Ambassador to “pay forward” my mentors and friends who have helped me along the way. I hope I can be of assistance to students both young and “old.” Think like a Proton and stay Positive!

Hello! My name is Jasmine Montebon. Originally from Philadelphia, PA, I moved to Reading, PA after studying abroad in my junior/senior year high school in the Philippines. I am a Health Science Transfer student at RACC. I plan to transfer to Thomas Jefferson's University and begin the Prelicensure BSN-RN program in the Fall of 2016. I am an honor student and a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

Hello! My name is Austin Moyer, and I am a Secondary Education major here at RACC. I started going to RACC in the Fall of 2014, and I just recently became an Ambassador this year. Being an Ambassador has been a lot of fun, but it is definitely a lot of work: part of my job is to make sure that new students get a feel for the atmosphere that RACC offers, so I try to make sure that every student comes to RACC with the knowledge they need, but I also want to make sure that I make students comfortable as they transition into the college. I’m glad I became an Ambassador, and I plan to continue offering as much help as I can to those who need it.

I will graduate in May of 2016 with an Associate Degree in Nursing, and I plan to continue my education to become a nurse anesthetist. In addition to being a Raven Ambassador, I am involved in Phi Theta Kappa, Student Nurses Association, RACCy Olympics, and RACC's Leadership Program.
Hello there! My name is Katie Mullen, I am a first-generation college student and I am a Liberal Arts Transfer major. After I complete my time here I plan to transfer to a 4-year college to continue my education in the grand world of Theatre. My hopes include directing and acting, although I am extremely interesting in producing as well. My activities outside of college revolve around clay-crafting, writing, reading, researching Irish history and archery. However, I try to expand my horizons in every way possible by trying new things. The Ambassador Program has brought a sense of refreshment to my life and I love the people I work with. It has provided me the opportunity to make friends and aid fellow students in achieving their goals. I look forward to the time ahead of me here at RACC as a Raven Ambassador and as a student.
