Norco College School of Business & Management

King grew up in the San Fernando Valley with her mom and sister. Her father passed away while she was in high school and she lost interest in going to college.

Once King graduated, she moved to the Dominican Republic. After a few years of working as a youth counselor and bus driver, she had her son and decided to move to a small town in Louisiana where opportunities were scarce and support was lacking. She realized that she wanted real change and moved back to California.

King enrolled in Norco College and her life changed for the better. Fast forward, she is now graduating with degrees in Business Administration, Social and Behavioral Studies, along with a certificate in Entrepreneurship. She looks forward to transferring to a historically black college and university in the spring of 2022, where she will continue her education in Business and the tech world.

“I am grateful for the support provided to me from the programs I took part in like EOPS, CARE and CalWORKs,” said King. “I feel better prepared for what lies ahead because of my experiences and support received at Norco College.
