I was worried I wasn’t going to be able to go to college since it’s really expensive, and my parents wouldn’t be able to afford to send me, especially with my other two sisters in school. When I told them about the Promise program, it was a big relief for all of us, and they were happy to know I would be able to go to college now.

The Promise program has benefited me not only financially, but it has also made me stress free since I’m not worrying about tuition and books. It has also helped me push myself to become better. It’s not just a promise to the ‘county’ but a promise to yourself as well. Being able to be a part of the Promise program has also opened doors for me, such as being able to expand my education to get a better paying, skilled job that will lead to a happy and stable future.

I believe that being a Promise student will expand my horizons as a student because I know I will have to eventually transfer. Also, I feel that the standard San Jacinto College holds its students to is amazing because the professors are very interactive and not afraid to challenge us. I feel like I’m already ahead of the game and ready to jump at any other opportunity available to me.
