"What have I learned from AMAN? What havent I learned
from AMAN? I came into school with a negative attitude as
far as succeeding goes. Now, Im an actual student with goals
and ambition. Although Im still not sure what I want to
major in or what school I would like to transfer to; that is still
a lot further than I thought I would ever go."
"I came up in a life where drugs and guns were not only the
problem but also the solution. I overcame that and I am now
a student with ambition and I have a brighter future than I
could ever imagine. I owe all of my accolades to the AMAN
family. Because without this love and support I would have
probably been out of school and back on the corners. Dr.
Colondres, Ms. Felicia, Ms. Sheila, and Ms. Lucy have
influenced me in such a positive way that I cant help but
thank God for their presence."

"When I first decided to return to school, I made up my mind
that I was going to get involved. Little did I know how
powerful my thoughts were? When I enrolled in the
Guidance 2 class, I quickly learned what the class was all
about. Guidance 2 is designed to help students become aware
of who they are and how that information can assign them in
"As discussions went on in class and the instructor (Dr.
Colondres) made us feel worthy, I felt comfortable enough to
share my story and willing to help others. For this, my
instructor told me after class that she felt I had leadership
abilities. She also suggested signing up to be apart of Student
Body Government. Eagerly, I went to Student Activities and
asked about the organization. I was told that elections had
already transpired and that I could attend three consecutive
meetings, and then interview for the position of Senator.
Feeling a welcomed unsure feeling, I did as I was instructed."
"With great pleasure, I am proud to say, that since then I was
a Senator, Commissioner of Inter-Club Council, ran for
President, and am now a current Senator of Associated
Students of Chaffey College, and President of
AMAN/AWOMAN Club. I owe it all to AMAN/AWOMAN
Project for helping me with my goals. My objective was to
learn how to navigate, facilitate, and come up with some
innovative ideas to help make Chaffey College a fun and
exciting place to receive an education. Helping others
students and being a positive role model for my son is
priceless.AMAN/AWOMAN Project made it possible and
will help those who want to help themselves and those who
are not sure how to help themselves. There is no excuse, one
cannot lose, only gain."
