We are excited to launch the pilot year of our College Ambassador Program at three local universities: CSU San Marcos, UC San Diego, and San Diego State. The College Ambassador Program is designed to empower upper class students to take on leadership roles as mentors and help provide incoming first-year students a successful transition to college.
Our College Ambassadors are trained in mentorship, practical leadership, and community building skills so that they are prepared to help first-generation students strengthen their self confidence, find their voice, and grow into pillars of support that future program graduates can aspire toward.
We are proud to introduce our SDSU College Ambassador!

Tell us about yourself.
Hello, my name is Hanna Olfoche. I am a 4th year Psychology major at San Diego State University (SDSU) on the Pre-Medical track. I was born and raised in San Diego, CA and graduated from Scripps Ranch High School and Reality Changers in 2016. Upon arriving at SDSU I quickly immersed myself into campus-life and signed up for every club that resonated with me. I am excited to see what this next academic year has in store for me as the Reality Changers SDSU Ambassador, I look forward to working with new Reality Changers alumni that are now SDSU’s newest incoming class.
What are you most looking forward to as an ambassador?
I look forward to meeting and interacting with all the new first years at SDSU and making their transition into college a fun and memorable experience!
