Hola, Bienvenidos; I am excited to be working as the (bilingual) Future Center Director here at Huguenot! I graduated with a B.A. in Sociocultural Anthropology from Yale University, then pursued Master’s work in American Indian Studies and Linguistics of Non-Western Languages at the University of Arizona. From there, I joined the VCU Focused Inquiry faculty and began working with Richmond students, and Latinx students, on reaching their goals.
The goal of the Future Center is to ensure that all students graduate with a plan after high school. That plan can be attending a 4-year college or university, a 2-year junior or community college, a technical or trade school, enlisting in the military, or entering the workforce. I also work with students in the following areas:
· College Applications
· Finding and applying for scholarships
· Financial Aid
· FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
· Registering for the SAT and ACT
· SAT & ACT fee waivers
· Employment during high school or over the summer
· Employment after high school
· Summer enrichment opportunities
· Essay writing workshops
· Choosing a career pathway
· Anything that has to do with the “next steps” after high school!
Let me know if you (student/parent/guardian) have any questions or concerns. I am here to help! I am at Huguenot every day. Students are welcome any time with a pass! If you are a parent/guardian who would like to set up a meeting, please let me know!
