In my professional career, I’ve been fortunate to be mentored by generous and kind colleagues.

However, despite the support I’ve received, it’s not been from other members of the Latinx community. In large part, that’s because there are very few Latinx colleagues in my field.

I believe that limited access to higher education and resources in school are a major factor in the lack of diversity of mentors. 

With many Latinx students today being the first in their families to attend college, finances can often be a burden in the educational journey. This leads to fewer Latinx individuals with degrees and fewer employment opportunities, perpetuating the cycle of poverty that is seen more often in Latinx households.

Taking inspiration from my mentors, I’d like to pay it forward with the Abran Arreola Latinx Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to two Latinx students who are pursuing higher education and who believe in the power of community.
