Meet Our Scholars
South Seattle College
Christian Peña grew up in Fresno, California and moved to Seattle when he was 18. She held numerous jobs and gigs over the years and didn’t feel happy and knew she wanted to do something more, so she enrolled in college. They got a late start in college, but are a proud example that it really is never too late to start your college journey. Christian volunteers at his local food bank because he knows what it’s like to have food insecurities. It is her way of giving back to the community. Their goals are to graduate from South Seattle College and transfer to the University of Washington in Seattle next year.
