College of the Desert fostered an environment where I had the opportunity to explore my interest and passion in politics and community service. I am a first generation American born to migrant farm workers who followed her dream for a career in public service. COD's access to education facilitated my growth through flexible schedules and supportive faculty. I was able to work, raise a family, obtain my degree and build a career all within the Coachella Valley.
