“I joined the Ambassador Board because I was drawn to College Possible’s mission.
As a first generation college student from a low-income background, my college experience was not particularly easy. While I had a great community of people supporting me, I realize how beneficial a structured program like College Possible would have been for my educational achievement. Learning about College Possible inspired me to want to lend my time, skills and resources to ensure this program benefits as many students as possible. Now that I’ve been a part of it, I have gotten so much out of the experience. I’ve learned about the organization and students, gotten a chance to try new things that benefit me professionally, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know my fellow ambassadors too!” –Leslie Martinez
