        My name is Ms. Jessica and I was born and raised in Oakland, CA. I graduated from Oakland Senior High School in 2011. And I recently graduated from UCLA in June 2015. 
        When I was in high school, I was a part of UC Berkeley's Educational Guidance Center (EGC), a program that does similar work as EAOP. My College Adviser, Emerald Young, invested a lot of time and effort to support me when I was applying for colleges and scholarships. I went to her office every day to work on my Personal Statement, college application, financial aid application, scholarship essays, all of that. 
        When March came around, I found out that I got into UCLA which was one of the biggest accomplishments of my life. Because of this experience, I realized that not only did my College Adviser empower me, I also took the initiative to empower myself. I might not have had the highest GPA, SAT score, or ACT score, but I had a purpose. And that purpose was to find my way out of the depths of the struggles that I was born into and to rise above to prove to everybody that I was capable of all odds. 
        Fast forward 4 years, I'm a UCLA graduate with a major in Asian American Studies & a minor Education Studies and I'm working to make higher education a reality for all students. I firmly believe that you go where your community needs you the most. And that's why I'm here.
