Daphne Saucelo is a freshman from Antioch studying to become a nurse. She has always known that she wanted to pursue a job in the medical field and likes that nursing gives a variety of areas to work in. Daphne also represents our women’s volleyball team and considers them her family away from home. We’re thrilled to have Daphne a part of our Pioneers family!
What is your dream job?
I aim to work as a nurse for a while, save up my money and take over my family’s business with my sister.
How does that compare to what you wanted to be when you were young?
When I was young, I knew that I wanted to be in the medical field. Originally, I wanted to be a dentist because I loved teeth so much, but I felt like it would be a boring job to clean teeth all day. Nursing is so wide-ranged; I would have the choice to pick what area I want to work in.
What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Pioneers family?
My favorite part of being part of the Pioneers family is playing on the volleyball team. I love to have a little family here away from home. I love to practice with them, continue team bonding, and making lifelong memories.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world would be Lake Tahoe. It has been a family tradition to go there, and I just love the clear waters, the vast forests, and the cabin houses there. I always feel at ease and calm whenever I am there seeing mother nature.
If you had to be trapped in a movie for a day, what movie would you choose?
If I could be trapped in a movie for a day, it would be High School Musical 2, working at a golf course over the summer with all your high school friends. It sounds so fun spending an entire summer together with friends, singing, and dancing. Even though they were working, the group of friends had each other and made it a summer they would not forget.
What is something you are passionate about?
I am extremely passionate about my family. They have helped me shape who I am today. They have taught me important life lessons, ways of life, and much more. Family is the most important thing in life, and I always believe in treating my future family with the same love and respect.
Recommend a place to go in the Bay Area on a weekend
I totally recommend Walnut Creek or Concord. It has malls, shopping centers, boba shops, and a whole variety of restaurants. You will find great eats out there. My favorite places are The Cheesecake Factory and OH Gane Korean BBQ.
