Sasha Davila joined Fulfillment Fund in May 2016 as a College Access Program Advisor where she provided specialized college prep curriculum and programing to students year round at Hamilton High School. She transitioned to the Transfer Scholars Program Manager in the Post Secondary Department where she works with community college students from around Los Angeles. She manages a transfer preparedness scholarship program to support and ensure transfer success to four year universities.

This experience has guided her to discover her passion in college access and paying it forward.

Having this foundation solidified her belief that resources and support are vital to a student’s success and increases their persistence.
