My name is Jenny Roxas and I identify as FLI. I understand how hard it can be when you’re in a new environment. I was the first in my family to go to college, so I can relate to many of the experiences you'll have here on-campus. Also, I've been helping FLI students from various higher education institutions and nonprofits throughout the U.S. since 2012.
I'm excited to assist you with your career journey-- whether that's exploring your interests, articulating your values and skill sets, or connecting you with people to grow your professional network. I'm here to provide tailored programs and workshops, share resources, and provide coaching for groups and individuals. Recently, we launched the FLI Alumni Mentoring Group which has over 200 FLI alumni! I hope you'll connect with them and connect with me.

Why I’m So FLI Feast
This event was a celebration of the launch of the Stanford FLI Alumni Mentoring Program. It brought together all members of the Stanford FLI community to talk about shared FLI experiences, the type of character they build, and how members of the community are using that character to build success!
This event was a workshop that was part of the “FLIP Your Perspective Week”, and focused on how FLI students can articulate the skills they have built as part of their shared FLI experiences.
