“Everyone has a different obstacle but that does not mean that they do not have the right to succeed. An obstacle is nothing but a road block and a person must learn how to create a detour around it.”
– Yesenya, 2013 College Summit Peer Leader of the Year
Students like Yesenya grow up in low-income communities where high school students aren’t expected to go to college. These students face all kinds of obstacles to a brighter future.
