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.”

Leaders of Lurie College | Diba

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

“Feeling nervous about being in school for the first time after so many years away, let alone as a graduate student, I couldn’t have asked for a more meaningful experience. From my first day at the Lurie College of Education, I finally felt like I had found my calling. Surrounded by inspiring professors and like-minded colleagues, I found a place where I belonged. I’ve also formed life-long bonds with some of the most amazing people. For that alone, I am forever grateful to this school.”
