We are writing to you today because it is that time of the year when we celebrate the successes of our students as they graduate from one school and embark on their new journeys. This year we have three amazing students who will be heading to diverse universities as a stepping stone towards their ultimate goals of obtaining MDs, JDs, and Ph.D.s.
* Maria was accepted to 9 universities, but has chosen to attend UCLA and obtain a degree in sociology. Subsequently, she plans to obtain a Ph.D. in Sociology.
* Jorge applied and was accepted to UC Davis as he wants to become a pediatrician.
* Abel Fernando was accepted to 6 universities and is waiting on USC, but for now has decided that he will attend UC Berkeley. He will also study sociology and plans to obtain a law degree with a focus on immigration.
I invite you to review these three links and consider a donation to each of our present and future leaders. I have known each of these young leaders for many years. I believe that if given the support, they will come back to our communities and do the same for others. All three of them volunteer with MEChA, Undocumented Student Union, and other non-profit organizations.
If you choose not to make a donation through this medium, but would like to write a check to their name, please feel free to send the check
