TGI’s Holiday Challenge Starring Victoria Perez!

1 Dec

Victoria

Victoria Perez is truly one of the stars of The Gamble Institute (TGI) and Street Scholars.  Victoria first came to TGI in 2011 as a student in our computer literacy and compassionate communication classes.  She quickly emerged as a leader and committed member of the TGI family. In 2012 Victoria joined the Leadership Team and worked with her teammates to develop the Street Scholars Peer Mentoring Program. As a mentor, Victoria greets everyone with a smile and a hug. Her energy alone makes students want to do better for themselves!

“It’s an opportunity to give back. To listen to other people. To hear them out and encourage them.” Victoria says of being a peer mentor. “I also learn from them [the students].”  Victoria is a Merritt College student herself and enjoys academic life.  “I like learning something new every day.”

For Victoria, making a financial contribution to TGI in support of Street Scholars is “a way to support us so we can support the students.  Your donation helps us continue to listen to the students especially when they are overwhelmed.  We can really hear them out.”

Thank you, Victoria! We love you! You are an important part of Street Scholars and TGI.
