How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
Since I haven't been able to receive any financial aid or scholarship, any increase in tuition, however small it may be, can be the difference between me being able to finish my career or having to drop out of my Master's program. I'm getting straight A's and I believe I am making a positive impact in my teachers and my classmates, and I hope I can continue to do so.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I'm enrolled in a Master's Degree in Spanish. When I graduate I hope to become a professor of Spanish and Latin American literature at SF State or any other University in California.


Santiago A., 28 San Francisco
