Brenda Dueñas: Lincoln High School Brenda’s Top Three Universities: Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and UC Irvine Intended Major: Engineering Brenda on the Upward Bound Program: “Being in the program has benefited me by letting me experience the college life, teaching me things like time management, note taking, the four systems of higher education, I was able to visit campuses I probably wouldnt have myself, and I also got to benefit from the SAT prep. Without that preparation I wouldnt have been ready for the SAT at all. I learned a lot of little things that helped me out so much.” Brenda’s Word of Advice: “Underclassmen, dont ever procrastinate!
