Attending San Francisco City College

Transcripts available in the following languages:

Well, I was trying to get my B.A. and I guess two things I still remember learning. I took public speaking there and I had a chance to travel to different places to speak in behalf of our debating team. That was a very good experience for me, because today I feel that that has helped me to relate to audiences throughout the United States that I get a chance to speak now. So I am very privileged that was a good experience for me, that’s one.

The second was that I learned about people, I took Sociology, and also took Social Econ, and I learned about labor movements, and I learned about how the labor is part of a society and yet they get pushed down on all the time. Yet we should value what labor does for our economy.
