Knowledge is power. Educating underprivileged youth is the best way of empowering them. Many dedicated professionals make it their mission to bring education to minority children in an effort to improve their future.
Today’s guest for College Expert Talk is Jesica Gamboa Feliciano, a program manager of A Better Chance–a mission dedicated in providing support in various ways to equip young people of color acquire the best education that they deserve.
Feliciano’s responsibilities include organizing activities for student recruitment, placement, and support in the Southwest Region (Southern CA, CO, AZ, NV, NM, TX, UT). The goal is to enroll students of color in some of the nation’s finest college preparatory schools, both private and public.
