Sarah Mummah catches up with longtime student Melissa at a DreamCatchers session held at Palo Alto High School, one of two sites that host the program. Melissa, now in 10th grade, is one of the original students who attended the program when it was first launched in 2008, and now her sister Jasmin, right, is a student of the program.

arah Mummah is beyond doubt a determined woman. She recalls that as a Stanford student, when a professor was discussing disparities in education and health between affluent people and the poor, she demanded: “What can I do about this? Why isn’t anyone doing something about this? It shouldn’t be that hard.” “I was so naive,” the 23-year-old Atherton resident acknowledges over a latte and fruit cup at Cafe Borrone during a recent interview with the Almanac. Naive or not, Ms. Mummah found herself unable to stop gnawing on the basic questions raised during that discussion. But instead of asking why someone else wasn’t doing something about the problem, she focused on the first question — what could she do to correct the troublesome disparities?

Throughout her years at Stanford, where she earned a degree with honors in human biology, she explored ways to change what she perceived as an unnecessary condition among disadvantaged kids that made success and good health as adults much less likely than they were for their privileged peers. And in 2008, while still a student, she founded DreamCatchers, a nonprofit serving low-income middle school students — now including high school students — in the areas of academics and health. A cornerstone of the DreamCatchers’ program is one-on-one tutoring with a Stanford student who stays with the younger student for an entire academic year, Ms. Mummah explains. “So they get tailor-made academic support and mentorship, and they get in the loop for a college path.” The program includes a health component, and offers a weekly cook-

ing class that focuses on healthful foods. What started as a temporary summer project with Stanford volunteers teaching and mentoring kids is now an established, award-winning program based in Palo Alto — and was likely to have been among the credentials that stood out for the panel of applicant reviewers who recently chose Ms. Mummah as one of 40 Americans named 2012 Gates Cambridge Scholars. The Gates scholarship pays all expenses for Ms. Mummah’s studies at Cambridge University, where she plans to work on a master’s degree in public health, researching approaches to changing behavior that impacts health. Epiphany

Ms. Mummah’s education in human biology at Stanford was bolstered, sometimes joltingly, by

the education she received through direct experience in the field of human motivation. During her early student days, she volunteered with the group Students for Healthy Youth, working with fifth-graders at a school with many low-income kids. One day, she asked the kids to raise their hands if someone in their family had diabetes, which led to a discussion of how poor eating habits might lead to the now-epidemic disease. But eventually, she realized that talking about the problem wasn’t enough. What good was talk, she asked herself, when she knew deep down that the kids would be heading straight from the classroom to “their hot Cheetos and ice cream.” “It did not take me long to understand: It’s not just telling Continued on page 27

people what to eat and what not to eat,� she says. “Ever since, I’ve become very interested in cracking the puzzle.� And one conclusion she’s come to: “Sometimes a ‘stealth motive’ is needed� — a strategy to get people involved in enjoyable activities that would, by their nature, keep the participants fit and healthy. In that way, she realized, people might be nudged rather than nagged toward good health. Building a model

In developing and administering her nonprofit, DreamCatchers, Ms. Mummah builds upon research that shows that programs focusing on multiple areas are more effective than single-focus programs. Academics and good health seemed the logical combination for a program whose goal is to prepare disadvantaged kids for a successful future. In a recent report, the nonprofit Action for Healthy Kids cites research showing “a direct link between nutritional intake and academic performance, as well as between physical activity and academic achievement.� DreamCatchers’ weekly family cooking class is open to its students as well as their siblings, friends, parents and tutors. “We use fresh ingredients to create fast, economical and nutritious meals

that families can easily recreate at home,� according to the DreamCatcher website. The program also sends the families home with complimentary ingredients to prepare in their own kitchens. Other health-related elements of the program: DreamCatchers provides after-school snacks to its participants, and Ms. Mummah says the organization is coordinating with the Palo Alto Family YMCA, which already provides classroom space for the organization, “to explore how we can work together to promote physical activity among our families.� The organization’s annual evaluation report for the last academic year, based on surveys taken at the beginning and end of the year, states that “average grades across students and courses improved,� particularly in math. “Gains in habits were moderate, with about half of students reporting use of comprehensive reading habits regularly.� Ms. Mummah emphasizes that DreamCatchers offers benefits not only for the low-income students it serves, but for the university volunteers who work with the program. The positive synergy has boosted her hopes that the model created through DreamCatchers will catch on in other communities to help underserved kids. “I believe an exciting strength of our work is that our model is

highly cost-effective (through the extensive in-kind resources and support we receive) and highly replicable across the country (through partnerships with other universities across the country and their neighboring communities),� she says in an email. Such replication would not only help a far wider community of low-income middle and high school kids, “but also inspire and help equip a larger community of college students to make a difference in public health and education,� she says. With an eye toward expansion and sustainability, the organization will be boosting its fundraising efforts, Ms. Mummah said. It is now supported by numerous sources that include nonprofits, businesses, and individual donors. Although Cambridge calls — the scholarship is effective the next academic year — Ms. Mummah has asked for a one-year deferment so that she can be here to shepherd DreamCatchers through its current efforts to expand its reach. “It’s really taking off now, and I want to be around for it,� Ms. Mummah says.

Contemporary works include pieces by Henry Cowell, who was born and raised in West Menlo Park; Karen Linford, choral conductor and composer on faculty at Menlo School; and Bay Area composer D’Arcy Reynolds. Ms. Linford’s songs are based on texts in Spanish written by elementary school children at the Castro School in Mountain View. “Complementing the educational Earth Day activities for the young children of the Littlest Angels Pre-School at Bethany the previous week, the concert is geared for adult listeners and older teens, and will have an Earth Day theme,� Ms. Gandolfi notes. The beneficiary of the concert, the children’s library in Nicaragua, was the realization of a dream of Ms. Mundera, who lived in Pueblo Nuevo as a Peace Corps volunteer, working with neighborhood youth.

HUR RAY FOR

YA

Kepler’s event features

writers of teen fiction

by Karla Kane

roken hearts, boyfriends, otherworldly bridges and bands are just some of the topics up for discussion at the Kepler’s “YA Extravaganza,” a celebration of young-adult literature to be held April 18 at the Menlo Park bookstore. The 7 p.m. event will feature a panel conversation with touring authors Gayle Forman, Jess Rothenberg, Nina LaCour and Stephanie Perkins. Palo Alto writer Heidi Kling will moderate. The author of the 2010 YA novel “SEA” and a contributor to local e-book publisher Coliloquy, she said she’s thrilled to be guiding the discussion among “four of the most popular contemporary YA authors around.” There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience, and “a little birdie told me there will be games,” she said. How to define YA fiction? It’s very eclectic, including everything from realism to paranormal romance to dystopian sci-fi, according to Kepler’s event coordinator Angela Mann, who blogs and reviews YA novels for the store at thebookbind.blogspot.com. But though its subject matter varies, good YA literature has the adoles-

cent experience at its heart. “YA is generally written from the point of view of young people. And these days, the best of YA is insanely innovative, gorgeously written, funny, moving, terrifying,” author Forman said. The novels also often tackle controversial and provocative topics and can be extremely popular among adult readers as well, Mann noted. Writing YA fiction is appealing because of the combination of “innocence and fierce determination of youth,” Kling said. “Without the adult constraints of bills, raising children, 9-5 jobs, our characters have so much freedom. As a writer, (one finds that) the YA sky is limitless.” East Bay native Nina LaCour always planned on being a writer, but it wasn’t until tak-

ing a graduate class in young literature at Mills College in Oakland that she decided to try her hand at writing for teens. She wrote her first novel, “Hold Still,” as her thesis and never looked back. LaCour also works directly with teens in her day job as a high-school English teacher, with her students giving her insights into adolescent culture and inspiring her further. Her newest book, “The Disenchantments,” centers on a group of San Francisco friends and bandmates on a bare-bones tour of the Pacific Northwest following high-school graduation. “My first novel was very serious, dealing with a best friend’s suicide, so I was ready to write something more fun,” she said of the novel, which finds its main character betrayed by his BFF and struggling to decide

what to do with his life posttour. Because YA fiction usually features protagonists on the verge of adulthood, the exhilaration of new experiences is often a common thread, she said. “There’s something about road trips that encapsulate what it means to grow up and be independent.” Forman, the author of the tearjerker “If I Stay” and its sequel “Where She Went,” said she’s always written for and about young people. Though as a former journalist (including a stint as a senior writer for Seventeen Magazine), she didn’t turn to fiction until after the birth of her first child. YA was a natural fit. “Those have always been the stories that have spoken to me,” she said. Jess Rothenberg, too, has long felt a connection to teen litera-

ture. “I never stopped loving books written for a young audience. I have so many memories tied to great books and the joy of reading,” she said. A full-time writer now, Rothenberg worked for six years as an editor of YA and middle-reader fiction, included the popular “Vampire Academy” series. Since she began working in publishing, “I always hoped I would end up in that realm,” she said, calling it a “fascinating market,” with many opportunities for writers in the wake of the Harry Potter-era of YA successes with both young and adult readers. Though she’s a Brooklyn resident, Rothenberg is a big Bay Area fan. Her debut novel, “The Catastrophic History of You and Me,” is even set on the Peninsula, with the Golden Gate Bridge serving as a gateway to the great beyond. “San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the world,” she said. “I dream about living there, but my family would kill me because it’s too far away.” In her book, the teen protagonist literally dies of a broken heart after her boyfriend tells Continued on next page

her he doesn’t love her. She then must navigate the world of the afterlife (with the help of a hunky guide) while observing her friends and family struggle with grief over her death. “It’s a big mix of sad and funny, light and dark, with a supernatural spin,” Rothenberg said. The novel’s plot was inspired partly by her own past relationship woes. “I was in the midst of a broken heart and I started writing this to sort of write my way through those emotions, those grief stages,” she said. For Rothenberg, “the coolest thing about this whole experience” has been the response from fans. “It’s been amazing getting so many emails from all over the world,” she said, from readers who relate to the heartache and emotions expressed by her characters. Rothenberg said readers have written messages telling her: “I’m going through these things, too,” and “I hugged your book; it helped me through.” She’s currently working on a second book for teens, but said she hasn’t ruled out writing other types of books in the future. “I just want to follow the story.”

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 to the Financial code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable,

the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714573-1965 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-09-239909-BL. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee's Attorney.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior

lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following two companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for "Advanced Search" to search for sale information), using the Trustee Sale No. shown above. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. P936285 4/18, 4/25, 05/02/2012 ALM T.S.
