My name is Candy Bridgers. My life goal is to empower individuals, spread happiness, and live peacefully. People and our differences are fascinating! I love people, diversity, and traveling. I plan to visit all 7 continents, experience different cultures and meet new folks. My favorite movies are Dreamgirls and The five heartbeats, I could sing and watch them all day! My favorite comedians (right now) are Kevin Hart and Trevor Noah. You can always count on me for uplifting quotes. My words of wisdom for today, come from Dory in Disney’s Finding Nemo, “just keep swimming”.

Hello, I’m Kitara McCray. I am a recent SRJC alumni and a future life-long learner. I love making art in all forms and doing research on whatever topic has my interest at the time. If I could travel anywhere I would visit ancient structures around the world like the Giza pyramids or the Moai at Easter Island. One of the biggest lessons I have learned in life is that curiosity can take you very far. It’s important to keep an open mind and assume positive intentions from others. My favorite quote at the moment is “Life gets boring, never stop exploring”.
