Meet Ashley, SJSU undergraduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“My journey to college was rough from the very beginning. I am the first one in my family to graduate from a university and I had to do all by myself. During my four years I faced numerous setbacks – I was involved in a sexual assault case, my mother and father both had surgery, my dad had two strokes, and I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Despite all of these setbacks I was able to maintain a positive outlook and I will be graduating in the fall.”
The Leaders of Lurie College series has been curated by Brian Cheung Dooley.
