Cameron Schmidt

Marian Magid Scholar (2017)

Cameron is a Diablo Valley College student who hopes to pursue a psychology degree at UCLA. For most of his life, people tried to put Cameron in a box that he did not fit into. Eventually, he realized using the friction brought about by being biracial and fighting stereotypes would push him to persevere and succeed. He has found strength within himself and has the goal of earning his PhD, educating others, having his own practice as a licensed psychologist, and inspiring others in his community to pursue their own educational goals.
