How has the GPS Program helped you?
The GPS Program has made me feel welcomed and supported transitioning from high school to college. It's made my college experience comfortable and easier for me. The Program has greatly helped me find resources and opportunities that I otherwise wouldn't have been introduced to if I weren't in this program. Additionally, it's provided me with a safe space and has introduced me to amazing scholars and staff.

What keeps you motivated and positive throughout life's hardships?
Throughout the hardships of my life, I stay motivated and positive by surrounding myself with people who support me and with hobbies that bring me joy. Reminding myself that I have a support system makes me know that I'm not alone and that I can push through with whatever I'm dealing with.

What advice would you give to your fellow scholars?
Advice I would give to other scholars is to always reach out when you're struggling. Many people feel like they are a burden at times, don't know how to reach out, or are unaware of the resources provided, but just know that there are people out in the world, and in this program, who will do everything in their power to help you and just know that there is support available for what you need. I guarantee you are not alone.

What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation, I hope to find a job in my hometown of San Diego as a Pharmaceutical Scientist. I plan on staying there for the rest of my life but I would love to travel before starting my career and as a reward for my hard work.
