Meet Angela, SJSU graduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“Seven years ago, I left my home country, Colombia, to come to the Golden State. I am so grateful for having the opportunity to continue my professional growth. Now I am pursuing a Master of Arts in Education and Counseling. I have met brilliant professors who have inspired me during this journey to become an educator. They have taught me the importance of staying actively aware of social justice. I am committed to support, motivate, guide, and inspire other students through their education and success.”

“I love to learn and I have always found people fascinating. First as a student and then as a counselor I have always been interested in people’s stories and experiences. In every class discussion my students and I learn from each other, and my hope is that we bring out the best in each other. It is an honor to be on this learning journey with them.”

Leaders of Lurie College | Sandra

Meet Sandra, recently graduated SJSU grad student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“Looking back at my academic journey I am grateful for all of the obstacles that I have faced as a first-generation college student. Taking the less traveled route in my family led me to education which is a powerful tool that has transformed the way I see the world. I want to support, encourage, and guide ALL students towards achieving their academic goals and finding a career that they are passionate about. If I can help one person change their life with education, I have reached my goal as an educator.”
