I came to SMC as a first generation college student in hopes of figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. Not only did I find my passion, but I also made many life long friends and connections.

Smc has helped shape me into the person I am today. Thanks to SMC I am now #BerkeleyBound and will continue my education at my dream school. I will forever be #ProudToBeSMC!

​I would like to thank all my friends and family for helping me and supporting me throughout this long journey.#WordsOfWisdom: Never give up on your dreams! Querer es poder. 뜻이 있는 곳에 길이​​​ 있다​📷@raechellie​​
