Hi Friends

I feel blessed to have Santa Monica College in my life. I am a mother and I have suffered domestic violence and have been homeless. I am now a student with a 4.0 GPA and active in Alpha Gamma Sig honor society. I am determined to become an attorney to help others like myself. I am on the path to transferring, earning a B.A., and J.D.  My plans after graduate school are to work for a state or city prosecutor's office so I can understand both sides of the justice system, then move to defense, advocacy and policy work to ultimately make bigger changes in the system.uploads%2F2018-11-061541542523308-SMC-Foundation_Josh-Sanseri_Holiday_Fundraiser_411.jpg

I am also one of the students pictured in the holiday fundraising campaign for Santa Monica College Foundation. It was fun to be a part of the photo shoot, but more importantly I like the idea of helping spread the word that there are many students like me that your donations will help.

Many students at Santa Monica College cannot afford the basics that can help us stay in school -- like textbooks and payment for tuition.  As you are choosing which charities to support during the holidays, please include a donation to my page. SMC Foundation makes it possible for students to attain their dreams. The average Santa Monica College student is the first in their family to attend college and is working to put themselves through school.

$1,200 for tuition might not seem like much, but it is a lot for those who don't have it. Any donation amount you can give will help provide scholarships for current and transferring students, textbook vouchers and emergency student relief funds.

Please consider making a gift. 

In gratitude,
