Mentorship Program in South Oklahoma City

Angie has a vision for her community in south Oklahoma City: all students will one day receive equal opportunities regardless of socioeconomic status, race, gender, test scores, grades, and ranks. Since her junior year of high school, she has envisioned creating a mentoring program that would enable students to better understand the college application and financial aid process. Using her own experiences as a first-generation Vietnamese American college student as a roadmap, Angies Blueprint consists of a mentorship program that provides aspiring college students with the resources they need to successfully access and succeed in higher education, emphasizes personal empowerment, and raises awareness about various social justice issues. In so doing, she is creating a pathway to college for low-income and/or students of color in her community.
