I am Giselle Florez

As an engineering major and the head of Southwestern's Society of Women Engineers, I hope to turn my passion for 3D printing into a career in aerospace.

I never had access to technology this advanced, ever.... The fact that Southwestern College has it right now, it’s providing an opportunity to all the students, and it provided that opportunity to me.

I am Steve Whiting

I left a gang membership behind. I studied abroad with Southwestern College in Salamanca, Spain. I'm attending UC San Diego with a full scholarship.

The opportunities where I grew up weren't a lot.... I'm carrying a collective weight on my shoulders of people who are from the hood, not just me. That right there pushes me.

I am Mona Dibas

I am a woman. I am a Muslim. I was Associated Student Organization President. I started a campus movement to bring minorities and marginalized groups together.

You come here and you have a family and a support system. Even without UNITED, I felt that already. I was so lucky to have Southwestern College.
