Los Angeles City College student Christopher Martinez is the eldest of five siblings born in the United States to parents who emigrated from El Salvador. Majoring in political science, Christopher is the first in his family to attend college.

With aspirations of running for elected office, he currently is transferring to California State University, Long Beach while pursuing his associate's degree in Modern Political Science at Los Angeles City College. Christopher hopes to increase representation of LACCD statewide as well as give voice to all students who attend LACCD colleges.

"I believe the community college system is the bridge that brings students to education at the college level and then helps them successfully transfer to other great institutions to achieve their highest potential," says Christopher. He urges all LACCD students to become active in their education and learn about LACCD, administrators, faculty and student government. "If students voice their opinions and concerns, we can do more to assist them in their educational endeavors," he notes.
