2013-2014 University Scholarship Winner
"....I am a twenty-two year-old senior at San Francisco State University. Ever since I was in high school, I have been interested in the field of psychology, and I decided then that I wanted to work in mental health. For the past two years now, I have worked as a Licensed Psychiatric Technician at a Mental Health Rehabilitation Center. I love being able to help those diagnosed with mental illness to realize their full potential, and I knew I wanted to continue my work in this field, so I decided to major in Psychology for my Bachelor's degree."
