Josephine's Voice


How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
The increase of the tuition fees had impacted me and my family by how my dad (who is the supporter of the family)have to support my brother and I to able to have a decent education and to have a better future. Yet, if the tuition raise there will be no future for us and other students in the State. When all the leaders who made a speech told us that we are the future; What future?!? In addition, I have to work 2 job to able to cover some of tuition, which is not enough to able to help me to support my family and no enough to cover all the tuition!


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I am studying Hospitality Tourism and Management in SFSU, which in the outcome I pray that I will able to get a job and able to support my other brothers for their college years.
