Ms. Access To Opportunities
Grew up on a farmworker labor camp that instilled in me a passion to give back. As a Questbridge Scholar, I received a full-ride to attend Wellesley, not accounting for the 100k I received in private scholarships. The dearth of opportunities at my disposal motivated me to increase access for others by pursuing a career in public service consulting.
