How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
These tuition hikes have not affected me as much as for others. I am personally very blessed to have my parents working multiple jobs so that when I leave school, I need not have a debt to pay. However I am very aware that I am an exception as many of my peers struggle simply to remain in school or to pay living costs. Add that to the current lack of classes, and few I know can graduate in a timely manner and if they do, are left with a degree rapidly diminishing in ability to promise a job for them and a large college debt. This is not fair. Though there may be issues beyond my ability to understand being a student far from politics, I pray you understand our plight.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
My hope is to become a graphic designer after college.
