2017 Scholarship Award Winners – Dare to Dream!

 

We are so honored to announce this year’s recipient of the 2017 Annual Scholarship Awards: 

 

 
Cynthia Paz
 
As a young girl, I always doubted that I was capable of achieving great things.  As I grew up, I realized that nothing can stop me!  
 
I am proud to represent the Hispanic community and will continue to do so by furthering my education and reaching my goal of helping teenagers.  I am very honored to have received this scholarship.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jennifer Madrid 
 
Growing up in a predominantly underprivileged community and school district, I have been a witness to the lack of interest of pursuing higher educational endeavors. However, this has only motivated me more to becoming not just a successful person but a successful Hispanic woman.
 
As a young Hispanic woman with dreams to pursue a higher education, I will do all within my capacity to be the very best I can be. Thanks to God and to this generous scholarship, I will be able to reach the seemingly unreachable and achieve all my aspirations while ultimately giving back and representing my community.
 
 
 
Michelle Silva
 
My parents came to this country seeking a better life, this scholarship will help me financially to go to college and will lift some of the stress off my parents back.  
I hope to one day to become a speech pathologist.  I realize I want to help others who have difficulty in speech and language, and help them master their communication skills.   I want to make a difference in the Hispanic community.  
 
 

 Jamiles Jimenez 
 
I feel honored to receive the 100 Hispanic Women Scholarship.  I am planning on attending Queens College in the Fall of 2017.  I will major in computer science and in the future pursue a career that involves computer science and business.  
 
I hope to inspire other girls to think about coding. This scholarship will help me during my studies and help me pay my tuition.
