“Through Minds Matter I was given the opportunity to experience outside of my world, Boyle Heights. Minds Matter challenged me, it got me out of my comfort zone, it allowed me to realize that I wasn’t ready, and then prepared me to now say that I am ready for college. Minds Matter has given me the strength to continue my education and to become an engineer.”
