MEET THE STUDENT | Vanessa Munguia

Mexican born Registered Nurse, Vanessa Munguia, is beginning her future again in the United States (US) by way of San Diego College of Continuing Education. Munguia is learning English and getting hands-on training with California’s nursing practices at no-cost to her.

“I came to America for better opportunities. I want to help my family in Mexico, I don’t want my mother and father to work anymore,” shared Muniga.

Born in Tizapán El Alto, a town in Jalisco, Mexico, Munguia was surrounded by her family and a good life. By age 25, she married and moved to Mexico City. Three years later she and her husband moved again to the US.

Although Munguia earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the Universidad de Guadalajara and worked for three years as a Registered Nurse (RN) in both Guadalajara and Tizapán, she wanted a fresh start in San Diego.

Upon her arrival to San Diego, the Spanish speaker found out about the College of Continuing Education through a good friend. Muniga first enrolled in beginning English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in fall 2022. “I didn’t feel smart, at the time I only knew basic English language like the colors and numbers.”

With the support of her community, she overcame her self doubt. Now Munguia is enrolled in advanced ESL classes and the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program, where she participates in clinicals at Castle Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

With an adoration for children, Munguia’s long-term goal is to work in pediatrics as well as in labor and delivery.

Losing Everything to War; Finding a Future at San Diego College of Continuing Education

Zahra Husainy will never forget the date: August 25, 2021. That’s when the Afghan native, then just 17, became a refugee upon fleeing with her family from their hometown of Kabul after Taliban fighters overwhelmed the besieged capital. “All my goals, my dreams, everything was destroyed overnight,” said Husainy, whose father had been employed by the American military, sewing together uniforms and repairing backpacks and other gear. “It was just chaos.”

The chaos finally ended – after 11 months confined to a sweltering Abu Dhabi refugee camp – when Husainy landed in San Diego and found San Diego College of Continuing Education (SDCCE). She’s now creating a new life, progressing through courses to help her master English, earning her GED through the school’s High School Diploma/Equivalency program, serving as Associated Student Body vice president and secretary, and working as an SDCCE project assistant helping newly arrived immigrants enroll at the college to reclaim their lives.
