During the inaugural UCLA Day on May 17, 2008, ten alumni shared their reflections on UCLA and its impact on their lives.

Carlos Collard (Communications/Political Science ’02) shares with pride a story about how he found strength and motivation to complete his UCLA studies. His story is inspiring and his effort to give back and help other high school students from Yucca Valley, CA prepare for college is certainly commendable.

Today, Collard works as a Senior Administrative Analyst for the City of Santa Monica.

The next UCLA Day is planned for May 9, 2009.
