“Coming from a low income household and being the first in my family to attend college has allowed me to understand the importance of education for ourselves, our families, and communities. Education is not just a means to an ends but a life-long process that will positively shape your worldview. My goal is to ensure that you transition smoothly from high school to college and that while at Mt. SAC I continue to be a source of support to assist in your development”. Educational History:Garey HS, Mt. SAC, Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State Long Beach.

“As the eldest of 9 siblings and the first in my family to attend college, my educational journey from kindergarten to college has been filled with challenges. Like a rollercoaster, I had ups, downs, twists…and once in a while the ride stalled and was nearly shut down. As the architect of your own educational journey, I’m here to whole heartedly support you in creating a solid plan so that you may reach your dreams”. Keep in mind: “Education is freedom”.-Paulo Freire. Educational History:Rubidoux High School, Cal State Fullerton.

“As a Latina immigrant, former ELD student, and the first in my family to graduate high school, I encountered many obstacles in my educational journey. Although I was a DREAMER/AB 540 student, I learned that regardless of my status dreams can became a reality if one turns them into life goals and is diligent. Aside from ensuring your smooth transition from high school to college, I will devote my time to empowering you to be a self-advocate and leader in your community.” Educational History: Arroyo HS, Mt. SAC, UCLA.
