During the inaugural UCLA Day on May 17, 2008, ten alumni shared their reflections on UCLA and its impact on their lives.

Valarie De La Garza (Sociology ’91) talks about the competitive process she had to go through to become a Daily Bruin editor-in-chief, along with how significant this role was in shaping her professional career.

Today, De La Garza continues her successful public relations career as an independent PR professional and owner of De La Garza PR. She also remains an active alumna supporting UCLA in various activities.

The next UCLA Day is planned for May 9, 2009.
