Learning Leadership, Leading By Example

When Yaritza was twelve, her father was deported, leaving her mother to support the family. Yaritza knew a college education would provide the financial security they needed. but she had little hope that attending a four year university was within her reach.  

Beginning in 9th grade, Yaritza joined Girls Inc. Here, she saw college as something she could strive for, and was encouraged to explore different professions and set career goals. Through the Girls Inc. College Bound program, Yaritza learned about the courses she’d be required to take to get into college, how to navigate the application process, and state and federal grants. College Bound also offered her opportunities to visit college campuses and meet Latinas in business and government sectors. Working with state representatives, Yaritza developed “College Tips for Parents” pamphlets for Spanish speaking families and was proud to be sharing with others the knowledge and skills she gained at Girls Inc.  

Now a $20,000 recipient of a 2015 Girls Inc. National Scholarship and a first-generation college student, Yaritza will pursue an undergraduate degree at California State University, San Marcos. There, she plans to major in Political Science, and enter law school. “I will stick up for others and assure them that their opinion counts. I will make a difference.”

Congratulations, Yaritza. Your drive and determination to make a difference inspires us!
