Sandra Estrada: My Road to College

If the road to college begins in the classroom, where does it lead? Well, to college, clearly, but we don’t promote college for college’s sake. Ninety percent of children in the nation’s lowest earning families escape the poverty of their youth with a college diploma in hand. At that point, the road from college leads anywhere and everywhere! In some cases, the road leads our graduates back to Green Dot to inspire, to counsel, to teach, and to lead our students to and beyond college themselves. In her junior year at the University of California, Los Angeles we spoke with Ánimo Leadership Charter High School alumna Sandra Estrada about her road to college and where this journey might lead her once she graduates.
