Elena Ortiz

2013-2014 University Scholarship Winner

"I am twenty-four years old, born and raised in San Francisco and just recently graduated from San Francisco State Spring 2013 with a bachelor degree in social work. I transferred from City College of San Francisco two years ago, I did not have the best grades but once I came to SFSU I had a second chance to improve my GPA, I committed much of my life to education....I have been accepted to one of the most competitive Social Work program in the Bay Area. Therefore, I want to thank the Franam Endowed and Vincent Costantino University Scholarships because I will continue my education by learning the skills and knowledge in graduate school to better serve the community....It feels good to have been recognized for my community involvement and academic achievement."
