Christopher is an artistic and creative native San Franciscan who is on his way to college. Being the first in his family to obtain a higher education is his driving force to continue with his studies. He also wants to be a positive role model to his little sister. He found out about the College Connect program through one of the recruitment events held at his school, June Jordan School for Equity.
Christopher applied to the program because he wanted to obtain more information on college and the application process. One of his highlights with the program thus far has been the college tour trip to L.A. This trip exposed him to the many opportunities and institutions available for him and his prospective fields of study. We look forward to seeing Christopher thrive and become a role model for other first generation college students!
