Jose immigrated to the United States with this family at the age of six from Acapulco, Mexico. Throughout all his life he has lived in San Francisco, California attending Elementary school through High School. He currently transferred from City College of San Francisco (CCSF) with two Associate Degrees and working on this undergraduate studies at San Francisco State University with a Business Administration major and an emphasis in Management. During his time at CCSF, he was a founding member of Students Advocating for Equity (SAFE) the first AB540 club at his school. What started off as five core members slowly grew to thirty. He is especially proud to have helped endorse the first resource center at school meant specifically to aid undocumented students. Jose spends most of his time at school, work, and volunteer opportunities. Last year he was a part of Student Outreach Team for E4FC, facilitating presentations to high schools, colleges, parents, and educators, on how undocumented students can succeed in school. Currently he is a part of Improving Dreams, Equity, Access, and Success (IDEAS) another AB540 club founded at SFSU. Jose's main motivation to continue with his studies is his younger sister. She is also undocumented and he wants to pave the way for her. He knows that if he does not give up, she will not give up either. His main educational goals are to attend a Master's program. Jose would like to be a positive role model for students who have no one to look up to, he is always willing to listen and help out.
