Outstanding Grads of the Class of 2014: Meet Mariela Salcedo

29 May 2014

Mariela Salcedo

At Merritt College, several students from the Puente Program are graduating, including Mariela Salcedo, who will be transferring to UC Davis as a pre-med student. Puente’s mission is to increase the number of underrepresented students who enroll in four-year colleges and universities.

Mariela was pursuing a nursing degree until instructors urged her to consider a career as a doctor. Mariela was co-president of Puente Club and a Puente Program Assistant. She would like to create pathways for more female Mexican-American students to get into medicine. Ambitious and compassionate, Mariela will, without a doubt, reach her dream of becoming a top medical doctor.
