My Students

I've worked with the class of 2018 throughout this past year as they've spent countless hours completing their college applications, studying for the SAT, prepping for college interviews, and perfecting their admissions essays, all while juggling their classes, school activities, and home responsibilities.

Most students in this community come from low-income, immigrant families and will be the first in their families to go to college.

As I've learned about their stories and the obstacles they've overcome to be able to succeed in high school and plan for college, I am inspired by their perseverance and determination.

This community is full of bright students who have big plans for themselves, such as the student who arrived in the US just a few years ago and pushed herself to learn English and exceed in her classes and will be attending Harvard in the fall. Our class of 2018 will be attending a variety of schools that fit with their plans, whether that be a community college, UC or CSU, Ivy League university, or private school in California and across the country.

My Project

Preparing students for college and life after high school is one of the most important factors in securing our community’s future. This year, through a partnership with the University of Southern California College Advising Corps, Our High School is hosting its first annual Decision Day, an event that celebrates the graduating senior class and showcases their post-graduate plans. In May, the seniors of MKHS will come together for a lunchtime celebration.

This project will fund materials that will help make the transition to college smoother for our seniors.

Most students come from low-income households and will be the first in their families to attend college, and providing our students with study supplies and dorm items will help them focus on doing their best in their first year of college. Planners and calendars will help our students keep track of college enrollment deadlines and plan for their freshman year. Study materials, such as notebooks and pens, and snacks will help us put together small study packages to get them ready for their first college exams.
