Soroptimist International of

San Francisco

"I was genuinely thrilled to discover that opportunities like these exist for women in circumstance similar to mine. It's incredibly empowering and fills me with hope that my daughter too, will have bright academic future. As a first-generation college graduate, receiving this additional support and opportunity feels immensely rewarding and encouraging."

"I couldn't stop thinking how lucky I was and how these women must've saw something in me that I couldn't see in myself at that time. Again. thank  you so much from the bottom of my heart. I am honored and proud and hope that one day I can give back to others in the way you have given back to me."
