Student Spotlight:
Imira Roussaw

For as long as she could remember, Imira Roussaw had her heart set on attending the University of Southern California (USC). A 2021 graduate of Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School, she said at the time it was her dream school. 

Towards the end of her time in high school, Imira recalls her mom telling her about the opportunity to attend Community College of Philadelphia for free through the Octavius Catto Scholarship. 

“It wasn’t speaking to me. I already had this vision of going to California set,” Imira said. 

About a week after that initial conversation with her mom, Imira received another postcard about the benefits of the Catto Scholarship. This time, she decided to give it a shot and submitted her application to the College. She figured that she could always complete her prerequisite courses and then transfer to USC.
