Dayana Rodriguez is a full time student at Pasadena City College and currently studying in criminal justice. Her involvement with Equitas started when her two sisters were attending Equitas Academy. Impressed with the Academy's way of influencing their scholars, Dayana decided she wanted to be part of the Equitas team in some type of way. With the opportunities that she didn't receive when she was younger, Dayana wanted to continue to influence other scholars the way Equitas has with her sisters. She believes that Equitas has set a great example of teaching and giving their scholars the best education the school district has to offer. Dayana finds pride in herself everyday knowing that she can impact and influence her scholars in a positive way. In her free time away from work, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and eating pizza.
