HOLA on YouTube

This fall, HOLA alumni Eduardo Andino will be transferring to Cal Poly Pomona, his dream college since high school. He started at East LA College and studied hard for three years to get great grades. He’s so thrilled that he has achieved his goal. He will be studying Civil Engineering and would like to give back to the community by building affordable housing, and maybe someday designing the next addition to HOLA.

Although Eduardo did not become involved with HOLA until his senior year of high school, he believes that the alumni outreach program has been instrumental to his success at college. He started coming to HOLA at the advice of a friend to complete homework and participate in PAT activities which led to him getting more involved. Eduardo began volunteering with YOLA at HOLA and was inspired when he saw what Gustavo Dudamel was doing for the younger students. When he started at East Los Angeles College, he felt lost and scared at first. He started communicating with Alumni Director Andrea Cova, who he credits with helping him to navigate the confusing college landscape. Good luck on the next leg of your journey Eduardo, we know we’ll be hearing great things about your progress.
