Dominique Reese ’06 never forgot her South Central Los Angeles roots. She was the first graduate of Crenshaw High School to attend Princeton, the first person in her family to attend college, and now is operating a business that teaches financial literacy to low-income youth and adults.
She says she is living proof that after-school programs work. In high school, she took part in the Riordan Scholars Program, a highly successful initiative that helps students from underserved communities achieve their college dreams through Saturday seminars at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. It was there that a fellow program participant, who later attended Princeton, first told her about the University.
