Yara graduated from SCCS in 2014.
“While in high school, I played soccer and was on the cheer squad,” said Yara. “I attended California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and graduated in June of 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, Pre-Law.”
SCCS not only grew Yara’s love for the Lord and curiosity for His Word, but it also equipped her to defend her faith outside the Christian bubble; a vague concept that she experienced very tangibly in college.
“The teachers at SCCS always encouraged me to achieve as much as I could, not just what was required of me,” expressed Yara. “This motivation that I cultivated and grew at SCCS has helped me throughout my college career and now, as I move into post-graduate life, as I’m preparing to start a career in the field I’m most passionate about! I’m so thankful my parents chose to invest in a Christian education for me. My time at SCCS was invaluable!”
Yara is currently applying to law school and hoping to start the Fall 2018. Yara will be pursuing her Juris Doctorate! “My goal is to be an attorney in non-profit law and work with homeless/low-income populations,” Yara shared. “I am passionate about underprivileged communities so that is where I hope to focus my efforts after law school.”
