OCCHC/SteppingUP has been a major investor in my education. I joined SteppingUP when I was in 7th grade and participated in their College Awareness Program (CAP) till I became the first in my family to graduate from high school. With the help of my academic advisor, Maggie, I was able to be the first in my family to pursue a higher education; currently in my 4th year at California State University, Long Beach majoring in Health Care Administration while attempting to complete pre-reqs for medical school. Also, I am currently an Academic Advisor for the SteppingUP program, the best part of this position is that I have the privilege of guiding students who were once in my shoes and in the same community that I grew up in, Oak View in Huntington Beach.
OCCHC/SteppingUP changes lives! That is why they are one of the leading non-profits in OC! :)

I have been working with OCCHC/SteppingUP for about 8 years (not consecutively). It is an organization that has helped me grow into a professional. Working with families and students is what I love to do and SteppingUP has allowed me to show that passion. Our families and students always remind us that we are making in impact in their lives. We hope to continue our programs so we can assist all and every family that passes through our doors.
