After an arduously challenging year, I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be attending
@UCBerkeley to finish my degrees in #Economics & #Physics.

Community college is often looked down upon, but I'd never do it without the incredible support from
@Foothillnews. Here's a 🧵 ⬇️
When I got rejected from most universities I applied to last year, I felt hopeless & lost. It felt like attending a 4-year was impossible without crippling debt, let alone getting into a world-class #university like Berkeley.
I ended up foregoing the offers I did get & chose to attend @Foothillnews instead. At Foothill, I was greeted by immensely helpful counselors & faculty, thanks to whom I'm able to complete my Associate's Degree in Economics in just one year.
It wasn't easy—I took the maximum amount of units allowed, maintained a 4.0 GPA, & still continued working on things I cared about. Thankfully, it was worth it, & I will forever be grateful to the Foothill community for giving me the resources & opportunities to do my best.
If you're in a similar spot to where I was in high school, I urge you: #dontgiveup! Despite what social stigma may dictate #communitycollege remains one of the most lucrative ways to not only save time & money but to get a second chance at proving yourself to your top #university
If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to reach out. I'll be happy to help out!

And now, back to work. This is just the beginning.
