Margarita began her journey at Continuing Education, where she received the support, resources, and encouragement to begin to dream about a college degree. But it wasn’t until she learned about the San Diego Promise that Margarita really started to believe college was possible for her.
When she was selected for the San Diego Promise Program, she felt like she had won the lottery. Feeling like she had a “new purpose in life,” she enrolled at San Diego Mesa College, where she now studies computer science. Margarita’s dream? One day own and run her own IT Company. She is determined: “This is my one opportunity in life, and I’m not going to let it go.”
