2018 Valencia Michelle Chavez Memorial Scholarship Recipient

The U has allowed me to become aware of my passion to motivate more Latinx students to continue with higher education. The U has also allowed me to become aware of the need for more minorities to be a part of professional careers. The Chicana/o Scholarship has given me the opportunity to begin and continue my journey with higher education.
