Profile: As Jamie Cook ended her final community college semester she had to balance a full academic load with two time-consuming jobs. She worked both as an assistant manager at a local Subway food franchise and tutored students at Mira Costa College as a writing consultant.

And on that graduation day, Jamie was near the head of her class, finishing with a 3.8 grade point average and a resume filled with extracurricular and volunteer activities.
