Access Sacramento (Access) is a nonprofit public access station providing 100% local television and radio programming to the greater Sacramento region. 


Dr. Mykim Tran started her career as a speaker in 2010 by motivating and inspiring youths to feel good about themselves. Wake-Up Foundation was founded in 2013 after Mykim moved to South Sacramento to continue her work, where she encountered a lot of low-income youths and families. She also met many community advocates who encouraged her to start a non-profit to provide services to the community. When she learned about the non-profit community, she immediately seized the opportunity. 


Dr. Tran believes that anything is possible when you are learning, applying, and growing daily. You can learn more about Dr. Tran by clicking here.
