Meet Michelle, SJSU undergraduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“I came from a dysfunctional home; my parents never went to college. We lived off food stamps, welfare, section 8, and school food programs. I obtained my AA degree and transferred to SJSU. Graduating in December 2019 is not something I thought I would ever be able to achieve. I hope to become an inspiration to all the future students and their families that nothing can keep you from catching a star. It may have taken me 10 years to get here but I AM HERE!”
The Leaders of Lurie College series has been curated by Brian Cheung Dooley.
