Meet German


What if anything has Encuentros been to you? 

“Encuentros for me is the help and inspiration that Latino students need during middle school and high school so that they have the mentality of persuading a higher education.”

What are your goals?

“My goals are to finish college and go to CSUSM or San Diego State for a bachelors degree in Criminal Justice. Then I have two options, to join the NAVY or to enroll in a police academy, so that I can became a police officer and work my way toward a higher rank.” 

Who am I?

“My name is German Canseco, I am 18 years old and this is my first year in college. I am from Oaxaca Mexico and I came to the United States 5 years ago. Since then I have met nice people. I think this is important because in some ways they shape the way we are.”

Where am I going?

“I am staying here in Vista, California where I have received much help. I plan to help my community some day in the future by either joining the navy or working to become a police officer, that’s where I am going.”

How will I get there?

“A good way is to be involved in many projects in school and in the community so that I can prepare and practice how I am going to help in the future.”
