Being a part of the Safe Time program gave me an opportunity to redirect my life. I believe that is a blessing itself. Many first-generation and low-income students are lost, trying to learn how to navigate the college/university system. Safe Time allowed me to have a pathway to stability during my sophomore year at UC Berkeley. During my stay with my Safe Time host, I was able to learn new perspectives and also gain a family and community.  I’m currently entering my senior year at Cal and am looking forward to graduation!
