​California State University, San Bernardino
William Randolph Hearst Scholar

My early experience with the rich cultural composition of Southern California instilled in me the characteristics of cultural curiosity and connectedness.

​​​Abandoned by her biological parents as a young child, Roberta “Bobbie” Fox has struggled with chaos and instability all her life. She has experienced chronic poverty, psychosocial trauma and homelessness. A single mother and first-generation college student, Bobbie is determined to provide her family with the support and stability that she never had.

​​​After gaining admittance to California State University, San Bernardino, Bobbie was accepted into the esteemed social work program, making the dean’s list during her first quarter.

Bobbie works with elementary school children as a literacy tutor and instructional aide. She also volunteers at a local community center that provides activities for at-risk youth and resources for vulnerable members of the community.​​​

Bobbie plans to pursue a Master of Arts in social work upon completion of her undergraduate studies and use her knowledge and experiences to empower her clients as a child welfare social worker​​​​.
