Step Up teen Jessica

Jessica is a high school senior who has thrived in Step Up’s programs. She says that the annual Bay Area College Tour was the program that had the most impact on her.

After attending the tour last year, she applied to Cal and Mills College and recently received acceptance letters from both! “Step Up has helped me come out of my shell and embrace the young lady that I am today,” Jessica says. “They have been there for me during the hardest times in my life. They kept me on track with my grades, encouraged me to get involved in extra-curricular activities and in my community, and gave me the opportunity to work with an amazing mentor, Jenna Boozer, who helped with my college applications. Now, college is just around the corner!”

Leave Jessica some advice for her journey to college in a comment below!
