JaMaal | UCAN Alumni

JaMaal ThompsonWhen I entered my Junior year at West Campus High School, I wasn’t sure which college to go to. I knew I wanted to go and that my family wanted me to also, but we didn’t know any of the steps.

One day, U-CAN came to my school and talked about going to an HBCU and it peaked my interests. I had never been in an environment where a predominantly black student population was as determined to succeed as I was.
I went to the summer bridge program and I was prepared for the college fair at Sacramento High School where I was offered several scholarships.

Currently, I am a sophomore sports management major at Howard University and I am grateful for the UCAN Program!
