I want to take this opportunity to thank you and the Joe Baca Foundation, for having given me the wonderful opportunity to further my education. It is an understatement to say that I had a great time at the awards ceremonies. It is every aspiring professional’s dream to meet with working people, who once found themselves in similar circumstances as our, to share their stories.
It was a very memorable experience and I know that there will be many more to come. This scholarship is of great help to me and my family, since I am not able to apply for financial aid. I will be attending Cal-State Fullerton University, in the fall (August 25) I plan to earn my B.A. in communications, with a concentration in broadcast journalism – Minor in French and graduate with honors.
I am attaching my community volunteer sheet, along with some pictures I took at the Millennium Baltimore Hotel, in L.A. Fortunately, I received a scholarship from the CCNMA Latino Journalist as well. They hosted an award ceremony, where I met KTLA’s Elizabeth Espinoza, “El Piolin”, and Univisions’s Spanish news anchor, Sergio Urquidi.
Once again, thank you to all of you for making my education possible. I will definitely not forget, and I hope to come back to San Bernardino some day and do the same for others.
