“Hello, my name is Cynthia Fregoso and I am a TRiO student. For the past 3 years TRiO has helped me accomplish my dreams to pursue my educational goal to transfer to San Francisco State University to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. The TRiO staff and fellow members welcomed me and treated me as a member of the TRiO family and provided me with the support I needed to become a successful college student.
“Through my time with TRiO, I gained a positive outlook on what I could accomplish in life. More importantly, as a full time student, a mother of two children and a full time employee, I was given the emotional and academic support by TRiO that made me believe in my strengths. Now that my time at Skyline College is coming to an end, I hope that one day I can contribute to our communities and impact people’s lives just like TRiO has done for me.”
As part of the TRiO family, Cynthia has been fundamental in establishing strong relationships with fellow participants in the program. She actively contributes to the outreach component of the program through referring potential TRiO participants.
