How have increased tuition fees impacted you and your family?:
I haven't been able to take any classes during the summer and I wasn't able to enroll in certain classes that are required for my graduation due to the downsizing of available classes. The abhorrent rapid increases in tuition fees show the miserable predicament of our state government department. I think we need a dedicated lobby for a political change in budget cuts because I don't think cutting budget on education is a way to solve our deficit problems. After all, I would love to see Mr. Governor's kids being thwarted by the education budget cuts if put in the same public educational system as we do and lack the funding for it. Nonetheless, I have high hopes for 2012, which would be the year I get my Bachelor's degree. I think San Francisco will come up with a viable method to overcome these problems that the state government created for us. I also hope the state government will do a better job for 2012.


What are you studying at SF State and what do you hope to do once you graduate?:
I like the SFSU diverse racial environment. I think this is what the entire America is supposed to be, which is a melting pot with all people living and striving in happiness and harmony. I hope to work in the Computer IT field, or the Video Game Industry once I am graduated with a M.S. from SFSU.
