Sunni Crawford

Educational Advisor, A2MEND


On September 2nd, I was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. I participated in baseball, football, and basketball for West High School, the Vikings' home team. While still participating in high school sports, I experienced my first college campus here at Bakersfield College in 2012 before moving on to Marshall, Texas. I have devoted my entire career to mentoring and guiding others in education. I had the opportunity to join two fraternities while attending college: Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and Gamma Beta Chi National Association Fraternity, Inc. I then pursued higher study at Wiley College since I was passionate about education, where I received a bachelor's degree in Secondary study. For ten years, I mentored and served as a residential director, providing priceless support and encouragement. I began my adventure as a 7th-grade math teacher, encouraging and directing young brains in their academic path after several years in other educational vocations. Later, I adopted the position of a college recruiter, assisting students in pursuing options for further education and achieving their goals. I then moved on to Jarvis Christian University to work as the residential hall director. Currently, I work as an educational advisor for A2Mend at Bakersfield College. Three organizations near to my heart are We Are G.A.M.E., Project B.E.S.T., and Stand S.T.R.O.N.G. I actively take part in these projects, promoting good change and encouraging people to overcome obstacles. I continue to inspire others with my enthusiasm for education and unrelenting dedication to assisting people in realizing their full potential because I truly want to have a positive effect. "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts." - Winston Churchill This quote by Winston Churchill emphasizes the importance of perseverance and determination in the face of both success and failure. It reminds us that success is not the end of the journey and failure is not the end of the road; what truly matters is the resilience to keep moving forward towards our goals.
