Who I Am
Patricia Hernandez, Class of 2018, Los Angeles, CA
How Donors Helped
Donors to the College Leadership Fund financed my Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). I interviewed Latina mothers to learn about the challenges they face while attempting to complete higher education.
What Donors' Gifts Mean to Me
Before coming to Berkeley I never thought I could take on an independent research project. SURF gave me the chance to delve into a topic I was passionate about, come to my own conclusions, and present on my findings.
My Plans for the Future
After graduation I want to pursue a career in academic advising to help other students discover life-changing opportunities like SURF.
