HOLA on YouTube

When Brian first started coming to HOLA in the 6th grade, college wasn’t anything he had ever considered. Now in his senior year, he can think of nothing else than what college he will go to next year. Brian credits HOLA for this transformation. “HOLA has shaped who I am. I see things differently now. Without HOLA, I wouldn’t be getting out.” HOLA has taught Brian that he should care about his life and the world around him. Even though he wants to leave Los Angeles to go to college, he does want to come back whenever he can and give back to the place that makes him always feel welcome and at home.

Last year Brian went with HOLA on a college trip to Northern California and he now has set his sights on San Francisco State. But, he also really liked UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley. Stay tuned to find out where Brian decides to go. We all wish him the best of luck!
