Meet Luz, SJSU undergraduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“I believe that education is the foundation of success. As I become an educator, I want to make a difference in education. I believe that all children should receive the best education available to them regardless of their socioeconomic status or their race. This is why I want to become a counselor and work with high school students who live in low-income communities to motivate, inspire and to encourage students to strive for success.”

Meet Saul, SJSU staff member and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“In the 4th grade, I was given an award for “perseverance”. At the time, I did not know what the term meant. Fast forward to today, I would say that I overcame a lot of adversity, especially being a first-generation student. As students, we owe it to ourselves to try hard and go after what we want, despite the difficulties. In the end we gain life experiences and we become more resilient, all because we chose to never give up. The 4th grade version of myself would be extremely proud of me today.”

Meet Edith, SJSU undergraduate student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“Education has always played an important role in my life. Since I began volunteering with teachers at ten years old, I become a regular volunteer with a first grade teacher at my elementary school. As I got older she allowed me to teach her class a few times which was when I knew that I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. Here at SJSU I have found many resources and opportunities to achieve that goal and the encouragement to reach my long-term goal of becoming Secretary of Education.”
