raquel's Voice


How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
I decided to apply for financial aid in order to pay for my tuition because I did not want my aging mother to work herself to death just to pay for my schooling. I could get a job to pay for my tuition fees, books and other stuff, but acquiring a job itself is a really difficult matter especially with this economy. I am deeply worried about education, because in truth, I have nothing to pay for it. I depend on the financial aid that is given to me and even then, I still worry.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I am currently studying Political Science and I hope that once I graduate, I can continue on to a law school and become a lawyer.
