Ruben De Leon, Class of 2011
Ruben attended Chief Sealth International High School and joined TRIO Talent Search in the beginning of his senior year. He had never really considered college an option, and was somewhat lost regarding his future plans. Luckily, Leti was persistent for Ruben to join the program. He was behind in his college prep prerequisite courses. Hearing about other students getting into colleges, and going on TRIO field trips to college campuses inspired him to pursue his own college goals despite being behind. He started volunteering more, developing skills in filmmaking, and became very committed to helping promote TRIO to other students. Ruben now attends SSCC on the 13th year Promise Scholarship, taking care of general education requirements and focusing on his future, receiving a 3.4 college grade point average. He will be traveling to Peru in the summer of 2012 with the Global Impact program, and also eventually plans to study abroad in Spain. Ruben hopes to pursue a career in media production and the arts.
