It has been such a privilege to receive a scholarship from ECHHO throughout the last several years. Through generous support from organizations such as ECHHO, I have been able to focus diligently and excel in my studies. Now, after four years at the Ohio State University, I have graduated with a double degree in Psychology and Italian with a minor in Spanish. I am certain that my course of studies as well as my future professional goals have been fundamentally shaped by my experience as a Hispanic-American woman living in the United States and I feel proud to be a part of so many wonderful communities. Financial support from organizations such as ECHHO has allowed me to graduate Magna Cum Laude, push myself academically, and has ultimately allowed me to pursue out-of-state internship and job possibilities. I would like to remind students to have faith in their ability to pursue higher goals and to know that the key to success is often failing many times. Have confidence in yourself and know that there are other individuals, and organizations, that are rooting for you too.
