I am a first generation college student. Over the life of my academic career I have been challenged by many educational barriers. Some people may call these experiences "obstacles"-a term I'd rather avoid since it implies they were adversarial when in fact they were fundamental in my not becoming another statistic. I am determined to continue to battle my family's cycle of poverty and academic deficiency.
Here, in my education section, you can access my scholarship(s) and award(s) from both public and private organizations. My legacy sections for Abraham Lincoln High School, Riverside Community College District, and the University of California, Riverside are loaded with great facts and richly describe all of my scholastic accomplishments.
