“Before I leave today I want to prove two things with my story:
The first being that regardless of how many obstacles come at you- health related or not- the struggles make you stronger and become your inspiration by driving you to be great and reach something better in life. And it is very much possible. Secondly, as a Latina, I want to help break the stigma and stereotypes that exist about the hispanic community. I want to be yet another example that we have the ability to be anything we desire.”

“I would like to thank HCAC for their support. My plans for the future is to get a bachelors in psychology from Cal State East bay and then pursue my masters in School Psychology. I look forward to working and giving back to my community. Thank you.”

“As the son of immigrants, I am aware of the economic limitations I have in this society. It’s not going to be easy to achieve my goals, but thanks to incredible people as the board members of this organization who volunteer to find economic resources for students like me, as well as for our donors who water the seed of our dreams, helping them grow and become true.
English is the language I use more often, but from the language of my heart I tell you “Nunca renuncies a lo que realmente merece la pena”. Thank you.”
2018 – Paola S.
“It is such an amazing feeling for me personally to know that there are always helpful organizations like HCAC that help students with their educational pursuits. I just feel blessed that I am given the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship to help fulfill my dream and I will prove that I do have what it takes to not only be a successful student, but an outstanding Nurse.”
