Titan of Hope

“I don’t think there is any such thing as a throwaway human being. I know how easy it is to go down that wrong path. Higher education is the key to changing the narrative.”

As if transferring from a small community college to a large university isn’t daunting enough, imagine needing a wheelchair and having a history of incarceration. Mir Aminy initially felt lost and struggled to find his place at Cal State Fullerton.

Then Mir discovered Project Rebound, a campus program that assists formerly incarcerated students in navigating higher education. Project Rebound helped him develop into an involved student and community member, while also giving him a place to be himself.

He began to mentor undergraduate men on campus and local youth at the Higher Ground Youth & Family Services after-school program in Anaheim. He was recognized for his selfless service and positive impact on those around him.

After successfully completing his bachelor’s degree, Mir now works for Project Rebound while pursuing a master’s in counseling. He is on his way to achieving his dream of working with higher education students who face the same challenges he has faced.

Be the difference in a Titan's life.
