Samantha not only has graduation on her mind but the struggles of a teenage mother trying to purse her dream. Samantha credits her parents, teachers and counselors for encouraging her to never give up.
With the resources provided by George I. Sanchez Charter School, like the on-site pre-school and childcare, and the Early College Program Samantha learned how to balance high school and motherhood.
