Meet Justine, recently graduated SJSU undergrad, current grad student, and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“As the daughter of an immigrant woman, the youngest of six children, and the first to attend college, I feel immense gratitude to receive the privilege that is education. Although the road to get here has been far from easy, what I’ve found is that persistence and hard work always wins. By adopting a growth mindset, I began to grow academically, professionally, and personally in ways I never imagined. So no matter where you are in your journey, know that determination will get you far.”
Meet Sharon, recently graduated SJSU grad student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
“One of the greatest days of your life is when you discover your why. Student development is my why. My vision is to empower individuals through career decision self-efficacy so they can discover a purposeful life. As an aspiring higher education professional, my mission is to identify the students’ aspirations along with their unique strengths. I want students to know they have the potential in themselves to maximize their social mobility despite the perceived limitations they may encounter.”
