Dian Rodriguez

Dian hopes to inspire fellow foster youth by showing what is possible through education and plans a career working with this community as a Social Worker.

An advocate for foster youth on local advisory boards and in schools, Dian refused to let her dreams be limited by status. References highlighted her resilience, motivation, and initiative as attributes which will make those dreams possible. She is majoring in Human Development at CSU East Bay and is a graduate of Carlmont High School.

For Dian, the question was not if she would find success but how, and now she’s ready for a career providing her community both an example and hope.
