Meet the Scholars: Angel Santiago ’20

“When I first got into Berkeley, I knew that I was going to go and nothing was going to stop me,” says Angel Santiago ’20, a self-described “village kid” from Oaxaca Mexico. Despite his drive, he knew it would be difficult to finance his undergraduate education because of his Undocumented status.

Receiving The Achievement Award Program scholarship enabled Angel to pursue his dream of majoring in Political Science in order to help his community through politics.
