Personal Statement

My parents instilled in me the importance of community through their own acts of generosity and service. I saw it exemplified in their lives and they helped me to develop it in mine. My parents, immigrants from Mexico, came here for a better life for their children and they introduced me to the organization, Neighborhood Youth Association, an organization that helps low-income students, like myself, academically and supports them to earn a college degree. I started off as a participant in third grade and in tenth grade I became a Youth Leader. Throughout my childhood, I was the one receiving service from my community, however as I became a young adult I knew it is my turn to give. At the university, I became involved in the Latino Student Forum, as Director of Community Involvement. Through a service-learning course in my FLEX program I served as marketing chair, where my class raised $2000 to purchase Christmas presents for the children at a local non-profit. I am confident that my leadership and involvement with my community will continue to expand for the rest of my life.
