Alumni Success

Amanda Diaz
Licensed marriage and family therapist, Santa Ana Unified School District
2003 Alumna

BYA taught me how to think and study independently. It also taught me how to learn from different teachers, which went on to help me both in undergraduate and graduate courses. It taught me to research and study the data to come to alternative conclusions and think for myself. I am currently a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist working for the Santa Ana Unified School District with teenagers.

Grace Berding
Speech-Language Pathology graduate student
2010 Alumna

Biola Youth not only provided foundational skills that allowed me to thrive in an educational setting, but it also cultivated a love for learning and growing. I hope that I can share this love with every client I meet when I become a speech-language pathologist.

Currently, I work at City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center as a registered nurse on the hematologic oncology floor. At BYA, I discovered my passion for the health sciences in Life Science, Biology and Chemistry. BYA also prepared me for the science classes I took at Biola to earn my degree.
