'04
Pope, Nikki

Nikki Pope J.D. '04 co-authored Pruno, Ramen, and a Side of Hope: Stories of Surviving Wrongful Conviction, published by Post Hill Publishing (2015). It features a foreword by Professor Cookie Ridolfi (School of Law) and a chapter written by Paige Kaneb (Northern California Innocence Project). Nikki writes, "Pruno is a collection of stories by and about men and women who were wrongfully convicted and spent years, and in some cases decades, imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. Although what happened to these men and women is heartbreaking, their stories are uplifting and inspiring. They and their family members and friends were able to find moments of hope in some of the most hopeless places. All relied on faith of some sort to get them through their ordeal and out the other side. Most people are surprised to learn that exonerees are not entitled to the support services that are provided to parolees or ex-convicts and most do not receive any compensation for their wrongful incarceration. For these and other reasons, half of the proceeds from the sale of Pruno will be shared with the exoneree storytellers and the authors are donating a portion of their proceeds to organizations that assist the wrongfully convicted before and after their exonerations. Pruno, Ramen, and a Side of Hope is available at online booksellers or in bulk through their publisher."

'11
Blanco, Eva

 Eva Blanco M.A. '11 is the new dean of Undergraduate Admission at SCU. "The desire to positively affect young lives and promote higher educational attainment drew me to college admissions. A strong sense of community and passionate students attracted me to Santa Clara. SCU changes lives and is located in a place that is equally transformative. Nothing compares to entrepreneurial spirit of the Silicon Valley and beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area!"

Eva volunteers much of her extra time to organizations and activities that she cares abouts. She's served as national chair of the Yale Latino Alumni Association, scholarship chair of the California Hispanic Professional Association, and grants committee member of the Arts Council of Silicon Valley. "I also enjoy spending time with my loving husband, DJ-ing, finding my Zen with yoga, and visiting my family in Venice, CA (my hometown). Last but not least, I love exploring the Bay Area."
