Gabriela Flores grew up in El Salvador and just a few years ago moved to San Francisco with her brother and mother. She first heard about College Connect through a friend and became interested after hearing his experience. Gabriela was particularly intrigued with the support the program provides for students and families in the college application process.
Despite facing and overcoming several challenges, Gabriela is proud of the responsible and hard-working student she has become. Because of her mother’s motivation and the college trip she went on with the program, college is definitely in Gabriela’s near future.
When asked what her next steps were, she replied “Apply for as many scholarships as I can and go to college!!!!!”
