Where Are They Now?

Thank you for the support you provided me during my time at California State University, Los Angeles, and for helping me to become the first one in my family to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. I got hired by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power a few weeks after finishing with school. My achievements were possible by your help and support. Thank you so much.
