As we collectively navigate the impacts of COVID-19 and this period of uncertainty, PSCCN is committed to our roles of supporting you and your institutions, and most importantly our students whose need for postsecondary access and success will persist beyond the challenges we face today. We know that students of color, students impacted by poverty, and students who are first-generation are often furthest from educational justice and are hit hardest in times like these.

For the last 7 months, PSCCN hosted Mikaela Chavez an amazing educational community organization (ECO) Intern from the University of Washington. Mikaela bought a great personality, a willingness to learn and an amazing work ethic. During her internship, Mikaela had the opportunity to work on many different projects with the team but ultimately reported to Angelica. While we are sad to see her go, we are excited to see her take on the world or what lies in store for her. To wrap up her tenure here at PSCCN, Mikaela shares her experience through a Q&A interview.
