Meet Angela, SJSU graduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“Navigating the higher education system as a first-generation student has been a stressful, and at times, discouraging journey. Through all of the obstacles, I have stayed determined and focused on continuing my education because my educational achievements do not solely belong to me. They belong to my family, my ancestor’s, my community, and all of the individuals who have believed in me and invested in me along my journey.”
The Leaders of Lurie College series has been curated by Brian Cheung Dooley.
