UC Davis
Major: Human Development
Minor: Communications

Did you always want to go to college?
Yes, once I became aware that it was an option.

What is the biggest way Guardian Scholars helped you?
Support. They answer all your questions, and are very encouraging. It is very empowering to know that I am not alone with my struggles and that there is a place to go to, where people will understand me when life deals a tough hand. Without the support and guidance of programs like GSP there would be a lot fewer former foster youth graduating from college.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I will have my Masters Degree in Speech Pathology and will be providing home visits to individuals who have communication disorders. Hopefully I’ll be married and be able to pursue my utmost passion—having my own family.
