Uera Smith III

Uera Smith III

Former Mentee

Passionate visionary are just a few words to describe her, not only does she have a gift to motivate, she really dedicates time to help those who seek out her help. She helped me when I was a student at CSUDH. Being as resourceful as she is, she guided and mentored me, which led to a position within the school while I finished my bachelor's degree.

Amaris Adams

Amaris Adams

Former Mentee

We worked on several projects together which she led due to her experience and expertise in the field. Patricia-Sonja then took me under her wing and became an incredible mentor and helped me elevate my professional and collegiate career. Without the motivation, insight, and genuine care she has given me over the years I would not have been as far as I am today.
