"When I enrolled at Cerro Coso in 2015, I knew I wanted to transfer to the University of California system. Although I didn't initially know what school I wanted to transfer to and for what, the professors and classes at Cerro Coso gave me the clarity to determine my path to success.

"As a Cerro Coso student, I had the same opportunities a student at a university would have to pursue internships, research, and fun extracurricular activities.

"After saving thousands of dollars in tuition and earning the right units, I transferred to UCLA and graduated in 2020 with my B.A. in political science. Upon graduation in June, I moved across the country to work on a grassroots campaign in New Hampshire where I served as the Director of Outreach and coordinated over 40,000 individual voter contacts. I am excited to announce my next career step is in an administrative role with Goldman Sachs Private Wealth Management in Boston.

"I am grateful to Cerro Coso for providing the best foundation and tools to be successful. I am also grateful to my former political science professor, who has been my professional mentor for the past six years."
