Marisa Jimison - Chabot College
2013-2014 Community College Transfer Honor Scholarship Winner
"This aid will make an enormous difference in my ability to obtain my degree. It eases the worry being plunged into debt to pay for my education. The money will go towards all books, fees, and school related expenses. I am very grateful for being given this opportunity to continue my education.
I am an English major with an emphasis in Linguistics and am also minoring in Spanish. I plan to become a teacher one day and work with low income or immigrant youth in the East Bay; like Oakland, San Leandro or Hayward. I feel my profession will make the greatest difference where the community is in need and the students have the odds stacked against them.
The San Francisco State Community College Transfer Honor Scholarship not only reflects the generosity and goodwill of the donors who contributed but it eases the weight of pursuing an education for all recipients. Someday I will return the favor, and help someone else accomplish their goals just as this scholarship has helped me."
