I am pursing higher education thanks to the many sacrifices my parents made as immigrants. Now, thanks to the generosity of the donors I will be able to pursue my goals with one less thing to worry about.

I am honored to be selected as the recipient of the Blancaflor Opportunity Scholarship. It gives me the opportunity and confidence for me to pursue my education at Bellevue College – a Bachelor’s degree in Management and Leadership in Healthcare.

My intended plans after receiving my bachelor’s would be to manage my own clinic and potentially pursue another degree that is healthcare related.
