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!

Maria Santiago

2015 Fall Quarter Overall Chair, Calling All Colors Club

My name is Maria Guadalupe Santiago Garcia. I’m a former Skagit Valley College student, and this is my second year at svc. I’m studying for a transfer degree to attend a University. I was born in Mount Vernon but throughout my childhood I have lived and raised in Mexico. Being the only one in my family that has attend college and also the youngest from two brothers is a big pressure because it’s up to me to show my cousin that college is the best path. This is going to be my second year in Calling All Colors. In CAC I get the chance to volunteer and learn to become a leader. This year I got the chance to be overall chair for fall quarter which requires lots of planning, public speaking and other skills. If you need any information about Calling All Color or school related information please contact me at
