To create success you don’t have to do anything worth accomplishing you don't have to do something super human. you must start with a penny”-Jeff Olson. That’s the motto I go by, my name is Victor Gonzalez and I’m an Undocumented Student, DACA recipient born in Tepic Nayarit, Mexico. I come from a family of four. I’m a person who enjoys to debate, running, weight training, cycling and very passionate about self-development. My  purpose for attending Skagit Valley College is to receive my DTA and major in Psychology in the educational field. I would like to eliminate the negative barriers students have and help them succeed for what they want towards life. By doing this it will translate into a better generation for the future and translate into less crime and less hatred. I am a AIM HIGH mentor, Latino Education Training Initiative (LETI) graduate and Calling All Colors member.  If you see me around don’t hesitate to say hello, I am happy to help you with any questions!
