A Bridge to a Brighter Future

Originally enrolled in 2008, Rajabi had taken time away from Berkeley and then came back after having her son, who is now two. Before the shelter-in-place order, Rajabi’s parents had been helping her with childcare and her husband had a steady gig as a structural engineer. They had just moved into a larger apartment with a higher rent when the crisis hit home. Her husband’s pay was reduced to minimum wage and Rajabi’s parents, who are at high risk for infection, could no longer help with her son.
