            1989-1993, BA

            Pitzer College gave me the tools that I needed to become and engaged global citizen. After attending Pitzer I could no longer walk along with blinders to society's injustices. I can proudly state that I am active citizen in my immediate community. I live my life trying to improve what is within my means. Pitzer never tried to change me to someone I was not, they simply helped my find my voice so I could share with others who I am and that for which I stand.
