Thank you for believing in me and for guiding me through the right path. It’s still hard to believe that I’m getting a step closer to my dream of becoming a great immigration attorney. I have started my internship at a law office. I still cannot believe it. I hope this brings you pride and joy to know that I’m exceeding beyond expectations!
I began mentoring Esperanza scholars as soon as the mentorship program was founded. Since then, I have supported – witnessed, really – the progress to success of three wonderful young students.
The Esperanza Education Fund truly stands for “Esperanza”….HOPE.
I think that every child, regardless of where they’re from or what their papers say, has the right to a good education.
My affiliation with Esperanza gives me an enormous sense of pride. It is a community of remarkable volunteers dedicated to ensuring as many outstanding students as possible have the opportunity to receive an education. These students will go on to do truly great things for their communities and our country, and I’m privileged to play a small part in helping them succeed
Being a part of Esperanza reminds me that a group of dedicated people really can make a difference. I’m consistently humbled by the hard work and generosity of our scholars, volunteers, and board members, and am so excited to see the impact this community will make in years to come.
I have so much respect and admiration for each Esperanza scholar – they overcome so much to achieve success.
I was originally drawn to Esperanza by its lively, smart, idealistic founders, then became more committed as I got to know the scholars themselves, whose resourcefulness, hard work and optimism inspire me every day. I want to help Esperanza fully support our scholars, and I want our country to fully support them as well.
I am a firm believer in education as the path toward life’s achievements as well as contributing to the welfare of our fellow human beings. So many of the young people today have to overcome several hurdles to gain an education, the most formidable of which are faced by immigrant children. As an immigrant myself, I am proud to be part of Esperanza and help make the journey somewhat less insurmountable for our outstanding and well deserving scholars.
When I read our applications, I am inspired not just by our scholars, but the dedication of mentors—teachers, counselors, community members—who play important roles in encouraging and supporting students who may have fewer resources throughout high school. I am pleased to be part of an organization that provides that same mentorship and support for students in their college years.
