I am honored to receive the 100 Hispanic Women of Westchester Scholarship.  I will be attending Binghamton University in the fall, and I plan to pursue a career in the mental health field.  While in college, I hope to continue making my family and the Hispanic community proud. 

Through hard work and dedication I have been able to meet many of the goals that I have set for myself.  I hope that I am able to inspire young, Hispanic women by showing them that they are capable of doing anything they set their mind to. 

I am grateful for this scholarship.  Not only will the scholarship financially help me, but the support of the community will also guide me as I continue my journey to become a valuable member of society.

My parents came to the U.S. seeking better opportunities. I have worked very hard in order to have a better life than my parents had, and to make them proud.  I was concerned about the financial burden of continuing my education, however, the 100 Hispanic Women Scholarship will relieve stress off my family.

As a Hispanic women,, I am honored to be given this scholarship.  I believe in the importance of giving back to my community and hope to continue giving back even after I graduate college. I hope to break down stereotypes and make a difference in our society.  I am extremely proud to represent the Hispanic community by going to college, achieving my dreams and helping others.

I feel extremely priviledged to be a recipient of this award and I plan to honor this accomplishment by working vigorously in order to become a pediatric doctor.

I plan to give back to my community, as well as others, and help children maintain healthy lifestyles by educating them on how to better themselves.  I will go on to represent Hispanic women in the STEM field and continue to reach my ultimate goal with the help of this scholarship.
