Luis Diaz recently joined the Gates Millennium Scholars Program with HSF as a Program Assistant. He has recently joined us after working on his Bachelor’s Degree in Gender Ethnic and Multicultural Studies with an emphasis in Chicano/Latino Studies from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
While at Cal Poly Pomona he managed to build his experience in Student Affairs as a Student Ambassador for the office of Admissions and Outreach as well as working closely with the Cultural Centers as a Social Justice Leader to promote diversity within the campus. His active role as a student leader at Cal Poly Pomona has driven him to keep connected with students seeking to achieve a higher education.
It is gratifying to know that our work here at HSF is for the community but most importantly for Chicano/Latinos seeking to break the educational pipelines. Knowing that students are aware of resources for a higher education, and that they are reaching out to HSF, shows that we have been making a difference in helping scholars achieve their academic goals.
“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” -Barack Obama
