Gabriela Villalobos

2020 Recipient

Major: Sociology, International Studies

Receiving this scholarship impacts my life, because it allows me to do more than just dream and actually do. Being here at the University of Utah as a student has been a life-long dream of mine since I was a little girl. I grew up in a financially unstable family. Being able to come to this university and receive this scholarship doesn’t only help me and my family, but future generations to come.

There are so many people who motivate me to push hard – to fight back – to speak up; these people include my family.. the community.
