College Board Member  – since 1980

"What I want most for the future, is to one day present my parents a diploma, my diploma from Harvard or Yale. I want my Grampa Juan and Grandma Andrea to hold it and feel proud. I want my family, through me, to feel that their family and name is worth something."

"Before the Ivy League Project, I had a vague vision of where I wanted to continue my education after high school. I wasn't even sure of what I looked for in a school ... or the resources available to apply. I merely had one goal, to educate myself about what was available to me. Visiting the colleges on the East Coast has filled in the gaps to my general goal. Now I feel that I've gained a stronger vision and therefore a greater purpose."
