Outstanding Grads of the Class of 2014: Meet Paul Martinez

29 May 2014

Paul Martinez

Paul Martinez, one of several graduating students from Merritt College’s Puente Program, made the brave decision to uproot himself from everything that was familiar to him at home in Santa Barbara. Paul, who will be going to UCLA in the fall, moved to Oakland and soon joined the strong, supportive community at Merritt.

Paul grew up quite poor and often felt out of place as though the world had forgotten about him. Now, he a writing tutor in the Learning Center and everyone expresses what a pleasure it is to work with him.  He is a gentle soul with a great deal of wisdom.
