Why do you love Compete LA? I love Compete LA because I understand what it takes to return to college. I can relate. I was a nontraditional, first-generation student and had it not been for the vast amount of support I received while pursuing my degree, I am not sure that I would have finished. CompeteLA provides that support to students.
Hobbies: Exercising and Cooking
Can’t Miss TV Show: Good Girls
Favorite Quote: “If you’re always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” – Maya Angelou

The greatest benefit of the Compete LA program is our personal coaches. You will be assigned your own coach who will assist in cutting through the red tape of going back to school. Compete LA coaches will focus on eliminating academic, financial, and social barriers to ease the re-enrollment process. Your personal coach will continue guiding you all the way to graduation. You don’t have to do it alone. We’re here to help.
