My name is Shanice Swan. I am currently a student at San Diego Miramar College, however, I will be transferring to San Diego State University in Fall 2018. I served in the United States Navy for 4 years as an Aviation Electronics Technician.

#iChooseLife Mentors

July 8th - July 19

My name is Quassie Swan. I am a third year college student at San Diego State University studying Business Management. I am currently a Staff Sergeant serving in the United States Marine Corps, and have been serving for the last 7 years. I am also interning at a commercial Real Estate Firm that specializes in Student housing. I love working with Young Leaders because it is our responsibility to equip our future leaders with the tools to be successful, and without them there is no future. I am an avid basketball fan both college and NBA, I enjoy movies, and I love participating in anything to do with athletics. 

My name is Sarah Roy. I received my BS in Mathematics from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2015 and my MA in Mathematics from San Diego State University in 2017. I will continue my studies in Fall 2018 by pursuing a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Houston, in the hopes of starting a career in Operations Research. I love working with Youth Leaders because I learn so much from the uninhibited goals they set for themselves and I want to work to help them reach those goals. I love math, I enjoy reading books with great stories, playing tennis, singing, and running.


The #iChooseLife Mentor Program provides a safe place for program participants to engage in youth development activities, build peer to peer support, and develop healthy relationships with positive role models. Numerous studies show that mentoring significantly increases self-esteem, improves school outcomes, and strengthens community. We use a group mentoring model which promotes diverse interactions between mentors and mentees.
