Make my dreams come true and help me pay for Harvard!

My name is Sasha Pellerin and I am an Albuquerque Native. I have been accepted into Harvard School of Education Policy and Management Program. I have earned both merit and need based scholarships, but have a sizeable gap for tuition and housing.

My work since 2012 are the highlights and accomplishments of which I am most proud. I am currently the Director of Hacia: Toward the University Program--a college readiness project for first-generation, college-bound Latino students and their families. I am proud to note the students in my program have achieved a 98% high school graduation rate and 95% college acceptance rate.

I want to do more. I believe the curriculum at Harvard will prepare me to evaluate and take action as a leader to build our state’s capacity and improve education for all students in New Mexico.

I am asking friends, family, and native New Mexicans to help pay for my dream of attending Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Your donation will help cover a portion of (gap) tuition, as well as cover part of living expenses in Cambridge, Massachusetts (It is super expensive!).
