High school student, Jason Magana is a prime example of how mentorship can aid students in realizing their potential to accomplish their goals and create pathways to success. Coming from a school district that removed honors courses from their curriculum and does not house college or career counselors, Jason knew that his success depended on getting involved in outside mentorship programs to ensure his advancement in his education. Jason first learned about the Hispanic Scholarship Fund from a counselor at a local non-profit organization. Through HSF, he had the opportunity to experience college life while during high school by living on campus. Not only did he experience what it was like to be away from home, but Magana also got a sense of what real dorm life actually was. “HSF taught me a lot of things...I recommend it to anyone who wants to succeed in life.” Because of HSF, Magana also got the chance to meet one of his role models, Vice President of Time Warner Cable Deportes, Pablo Urquiza. Magana is currently involved in an academic decathlon at his high school and is in the process of becoming a certified peer college advisor to help his peers get to college. One of Magana’s goals is to own his own non-profit organization that motivates and creates a gateway to college. His involvement in HSF are just the beginning phases of his journey to success.
