    Future Interests





    Hispanic Achievement Scholarship
    From a young age, my family instilled in me the idea that I could accomplish anything I set my mind to. They immigrated to the U.S. from the Dominican Republic in the 90s to provide me with the privileges I now hold as a first-generation citizen. I am filled with the utmost pride to be in this position and gratitude for the privileges I hold. I am privileged enough to be able to bring about change by utilizing the endless opportunities available to me; with access to a college education and being able to pursue whatever career path I desire. I refuse to let these privileges go unused. By becoming an attorney, I intend to use this privilege for positive change. I will have the voice to speak for those who have been silenced and give them a chance to accomplish the American dream the same way my grandparents and my mother did. In the wise words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “We must all live together as brothers or perish alone as fools.” In a society that has become increasingly polarized, it is our responsibility as citizens to work together for the betterment of our atmosphere. By first obtaining a bachelor's degree in Political Science and later attending law school, I will gain a profound knowledge of our legal system as well as professional experience in a field I am deeply passionate about. By utilizing all the opportunities granted to me I am determined to bring about a positive change in the courtroom. Specifically, I have found a deep passion for immigration law. Only 37% of immigrants nationwide receive legal counsel at their trials. Countless immigrants end up going against experienced attorneys and a complex legal system all on their own. Inequities like this are what drive my passion for law, and to one day bring change. I hope to tackle this issue either through the courtroom, case by case, or ultimately through legislation. Where there is real ability to positively impact my community. Throughout my high school career, I have joined numerous clubs and organizations that help me as I work towards this goal. The most impactful club I have joined is the Angelo Del Toro Puerto Rican-Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute which gave me the opportunity to go to Albany and debate various bills alongside like-minded peers. Furthermore, I’ve also been a part of Mock Trial which allowed me to experience a trial simulation and advocate as an attorney. This opportunity has only furthered my interest in becoming an attorney and also has helped boost my confidence and public speaking skills. By utilizing all the opportunities granted to me I am determined to bring about a positive change in the courtroom. This scholarship will help me manage the overwhelming costs of college and I hope you will consider me for this award.
