This past year, one of our Pathways residents, Queysi, showed an inspiring amount of grit and perseverance after suffering a severe car accident that left her with a totaled car and significant back injuries. After quitting her job to undergo months of physical therapy, Queysi’s ability to function and complete everyday tasks slowly returned. Once she regained her mobility, she was then met with yet another challenge: pursuing an education during COVID-19. The shift to online classes wasn’t easy, but despite her many hardships, Queysi graduated from Cerrito College in June 2020 and has successfully transferred to UC Riverside, where she remains this fall. Queysi has now completed two associate degrees and one certificate.
