Jeannette Rosales graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills last May. Majoring in Psychology, she aspired to work with kids in the mental health field or kids who were victims of sexual abuse. She wanted to be an advocate for kids’ safety and provide a safe place for youth to address whatever problems they were facing.
Since graduation, she has found a new path. After starting her professional career as a receptionist at a personal injury law firm, she quickly moved up to become the main attorney’s personal assistant. Now, Jeannette has been busy studying for the LSATs, hoping to become a family lawyer, with a goal of practicing family law. She still dreams of working with kids, but now as a legal advocate, keeping youth safe and out of harmful circumstances.
Jeannette is a graduate from HOLA’s class of 2009. She cherishes her time at HOLA, saying that “she wouldn’t be where she is today if it wasn’t for HOLA.” She joined HOLA during her junior year of high school, having no idea how to write a personal statement or navigate the college process. Through HOLA’s mentor program, she was able to not only become a college graduate, but now has her eyes set on graduate school.
