Deanna Jordan is a 28-year old single mother of three children and recent college graduate. She received two Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in African-American Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The Compton, California native gave birth to her sons between the ages of 18-22 before enrolling in community college for two years and later completing three-and-a-half years at UCLA.
With sheer determination and a desire to leave a compelling legacy for her boys, Jordan did more than excel at one of the top public universities in the country. While there, she also found the Compton Pipeline Taskforce where UCLA volunteers provided academic enrichment for Compton public schools.
