Samantha Jimenez
Alumni Mentorship

Samantha Jimenez, an ¡Adelante! student and SASP Peer Success Coach, admits she was initially hesitant to apply for internships, but after encouragement from a John Jay alumna she changed her mind and threw her hat in the ring.

“I worried I didn’t have ‘the goods’ to compete,” says Jimenez, “but I found support through the College’s Alumni Mentorship Program. They paired me with Bianca Hayles ’20. She pushes me to pursue opportunities and says, ‘Don’t be nervous. You got this.’
