“Without this workshop, I feel like I wouldn’t apply for financial aid because I wouldn’t know how to fill out FAFSA. My parents can’t help me apply because they both didn’t go to college and don’t know what FAFSA is but luckily, Fulfillment Fund came to me with a lot of help. They taught me step by step how to complete my FAFSA.” -Vanesa, senior at Hamilton High School
“Being the first to attend college in America, I needed lots of resources and guidance to make college accessible for me. Thanks to my Fulfillment Fund advisors, I was kept well-informed about my options and resources for getting into college." - Rukhsar Sayani, freshman at UCLA

“I will be the first person in my family to go to college so the Fulfillment Fund has been a huge help with guiding me on the different college requirements and because of them I’m ready to apply for college this year.” –Vladimir Galindo, Senior at NOW Academy
"To the young people of color who may be experiencing some of the same challenges I faced, I will share this: Overcoming struggles can take many forms – some direct, and some patient. The number one thing to remember is to work hard."
