Alicia Stephens and her beautiful Jewel of a baby

Six months ago, Alicia Stephens became a mother. This is her daughter and their first Christmas together.

 

I met Alicia when both of us worked for the Upward Bound Program at the University of San Francisco. Upward Bound is a government program that supports low income first generation college bound high school students. Recently, new non-profits have started replacing Upward Bound, but few programs, if any, have been more successful.

Alicia graduated from college with a STEM major (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). She advised students in the Upward Bound Math and Science Program.  Alicia is still studying science, but I do not understand what she does. I am a technology and liberal arts person, so she may need to explain it.

I have included this slideshow of the day. There is even a photo of our friend Reginald Moore, one of the best college advisers I know. (He is also a competent photo assistant.)

Thank you for letting me into your lives.

    Alicia Stephens Some people will not be able to see the slideshow, because the it uses Flash. There is a link below the two photos with the words “included this slideshow of the day.” From that link, anyone with internet should be able to see the photos. Let me know if there are any problems.
