Parrot Voices: Our Students

There are many paths that our students have taken on their journeys to American River College and to Sacramento, California. 

Here, our students tell a story from their past.  Their stories may be about happy days, or sad events...  but the stories are always told in their own words.

Scroll through and click on a few stories.  You may find that you have much in common!

The students' stories have been organized by common themes. 
Click on a theme below to see a playlist of student videos and their amazing stories.

The playlist of videos will open on YouTube.
