Leadership Starts Here

What starts here for Katheranialynn Fambrough-Brown? As Palo Alto College’s 2016-2017 Student Government Association (SGA) President, “Leadership” was one of the first things that came to mind.

Brown got involved in various clubs and organizations on campus soon after starting at Palo Alto College – one of the Alamo Colleges – which not only helped maximize her college experience, but also propelled her forward in other areas of life.

“Being able to have leadership positions and officer roles within the different clubs has been really great. It’s even helped me in the workforce because I’m able to take more responsibility with the background of being able to lead a team,” said Brown. “Everything I’ve done —all my leadership programs, my clubs, and my organizations — have already laid a foundation for me to succeed in the workforce.”

Brown plans to continue her studies and earn a bachelor’s degree in public health. She said that her passion for the field combined with her extensive leadership experience will guide her toward endless opportunities, like running her own business or working in community health.

“My professors have definitely prepared me. Palo Alto College has great staff and faculty. I feel like everyone here has done the best they can to get me to where I want to go,” said Brown.

Brown started at the College after having been homeschooled. She feared that others would expect her to be socially awkward and not know how to interact with others. While she admits that she was shy when she started college, Brown said she went out of her comfort zone and started meeting people. From making new friends with her peers to utilizing the various student resources on campus, Brown found that everyone she met wanted to help her be successful.

“There are people here to support you, and there’s so many opportunities here for you to grow,” said Brown. “When you’re done, you’re going to be better than when you started.”

“Coming to Palo Alto College was the best decision I’ve made because it helps you through that transition of going to college,” said Brown. “Here, I’ve been able to build something. Palo Alto College laid the foundation for me to expand my possibilities.”
