All Peoples and FamilySource Center’s College Corner Advisor Susana supports Giselle in her goals and aspirations.

Meet Giselle. Giselle is a genuine, hardworking high school student who cares about her education and love sports. In the 9th grade, Giselle led her soccer team to an undefeated season, and went on to win the Ocean League and Los Angeles City Section Championship. Giselle has been playing sports since she was 8 years and has a 4.1 GPA.

Giselle is currently attending a high school hybrid at USC, and has started contemplating her future. She stopped in All Peoples FamilySource Center’s College Corner seeking guidance regarding college admissions, academic requirements and scholarship opportunities that align with her goals and aspirations.

College Advisor Susana Nieva met with Giselle and discussed potential careers. They conducted salary, career options and college research based on Giselle’s likes and interests, and were able to pin point possible career paths: kinesiology and physical therapy. After narrowing down the colleges that offered the necessary degrees, Susana assisted Giselle with several potential scholarships and application forms. Susana explained that all of Giselle’s academic and athletic accomplishments can impact the chances of winning scholarships.

Giselle also plans to do her volunteer hours at All Peoples. She met with Jennifer Santos, RSVP Director, who explained the volunteer process and paperwork needed to get started.

Because of Giselle’s raw talent and hard work and with a little direction from a caring College Advisor, Giselle is one step closer to achieving her goals!
