Community Starts Here

Jazmine Ruvalcaba started at Palo Alto College because she wanted to further her education and start working toward her dream of becoming a veterinarian. What she didn’t know was that she would do that and so much more through getting involved in the campus community.

“Being involved really has changed the way I feel about my community. I never really cared what went on — events on campus, off campus, in the community as a whole. Now I like to be involved. I like to help out as much as I can, and get others involved as well,” said Ruvalcaba.

Ruvalcaba is passionate about protecting animals and the environment. She joined Club Earth, Palo Alto College’s student organization dedicated to educating people about the importance of going green, recycling, and beautifying our community’s parks and waterways. Eventually, Ruvalcaba became president of the club, which meant she needed to start recruiting club members and volunteers to help fulfill the mission of the organization.

“My experiences here at Palo Alto College taught me that people are important. You need people to make things happen,” said Ruvalcaba, adding that she now dreams of leading a global organization aimed at protecting endangered species. “Obviously, I’ll need volunteers, helpers, people to get involved to make that happen. That’s a goal I have to get people involved and aware.”

No matter where she goes on her journey, Ruvalcaba is thankful she got her start at Palo Alto College, and she will never forget the growth she experienced through getting involved.

“Coming to Palo Alto College has really taught me the value of my education and people and community. Nothing can happen when you don’t have people helping you out, supporting you, pushing you to follow your dreams. It’s a really huge thing. Everybody that I’ve met has been very kind, very supportive. They genuinely care about you. They’re like family,” said Ruvalcaba.
