By donating to this campaign, you will help us continue to build a robust network of support that provides students with access to expensive course essentials and with a sense of belonging and stability in uncertain times. Your donation will:
Empower students to remain active participants in the classroom by bolstering our Lute Lending Library, a thriving resource that provides easy access to essential course materials such as expensive textbooks, clickers, and software subscriptions;
Secure their ability to stay in school by covering tuition pay gap;
Support their ability to stay focused on their academic success by providing funds to cover emergency DACA renewals and legal fees.
Every dollar counts toward helping us strengthen and expand our commitment to helping students access education and achieve academic success! Help us reach our goal of $8000!

As a first generation student, I arrived to college with fear, excitement, grit, and motivation to break this cycle of not continuing our education after high school to work hard labor jobs.
It is easy to get caught up on the things of yesterday and worry about the uncertainty of tomorrow. The responsibility of being the “role model” has always weighed down on me.
But now as I see myself fulfilling my dreams I know that all the late nights, tears, and stress are worth it. I want to cherish the time in which I am living right now with love, freedom and perseverance until the end.
My resilience was gifted to me by my parents hard work as immigrants in this country, and that resiliency has only grown. Not only does it protect me, but it gives my little sisters hope, and it fuels my determination to succeed.
In spite of obstacles, grit and perseverance vitalize my desire to become a highly-motivated, ethical, working professional. I learned to take adversity and convert it into rocket fuel.
