Lucero Samantha Renteria

My name is Lucero Samantha Renteria. I am a senior at Santa Maria High school, and I’m 17 years old. After I graduate, I plan on attending Allan Hancock College for two years and then transferring out to UCSB to study developmental psychology.

I am 100% Chicana! My family is from the city of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. I am very proud of my roots, and I honor my background to the fullest. I lived in California my whole life, and I plan to keep it that way. I enjoy all genres of music, ranging from reggae to country, or from indie to classic rock! I always have a positive outlook on life. My friends and family know me for always being happy and laughing. This is my first year inĀ  yearbook, and I already love it! I’m glad to have this class & I’m super excited to make new friends in yearbook who share the same interests as me.
