"...I was born and raised in San Carlos, California, where I still currently reside. I enjoy learning, and exploring many different things ... I love having new experiences and I am delighted to be back in school where I am able to grow and expand my knowledge in so many other areas ... I am truly at my happiest when I am a student. I am very proud of my recent graduation from College of San Mateo. I now have an Associate's Degree in Communication Studies. I am also the first in my family to graduate which is a huge accomplishment. I am thrilled to continue moving forward and take on every challenge that comes my way."
"...I work as many shifts as I am able, however with my class load it becomes challenging to make ends meet. This scholarship will definitely help me with being able to help finance my studies and breathe a little bit easier ..."
