Featured in the 2014 Book of Dreams, Melanie Ocon works on homework at home in South Sacramento. She is the first in her family to graduate from high school and if all goes as planned, attend college. The Center for Land-Based Learning asked the Book of Dreams readers to help Ocon and other college-bound students by funding "Laptop and Luggage Scholarships" that would provide a laptop and other college essentials for 10 deserving students.
