That is a picture of me at my first graduation! My goal is to increase the number of low-income students that make it from this first graduation through to their college graduation.
The tools that I will gain from StartingBloc will increase my ability to make a smart and sustainable change
I currently work for a leadership program that identifies underrepresented minority community college students and provides academic and financial support to help them transfer to and complete bachelor degree prorgams as competitve 4-year institutions. My experiences working with these amazing scholars has helped me determine my mission: getting students through (not just to) college. I have been blessed with a family that made incredible sacrifices to ensure that I obtained a solid education. Everyone that is willing deserves that opportunity.
