Meet our 2012-2013 scholarship recipients: Diem Hoang, Joshua Vargas, & Kyrsten Gammon!
Diem is expecting to graduate in Spring 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. She is very passionate about education and is interested in becoming a university professor in the future. Having moved from Vietnam to the United States, Diem worked very hard to learn the English language and adjust to a new culture and environment. Her strong work ethic has been impacted by her parents’ teachings, and she is grateful for the sacrifices they have made. When reflecting on her experiences, Diem says: “I have a belief that being in the United States will give me the opportunities to help me reach my dreams.”
Kyrsten is graduating this December 2012, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services, with an emphasis in mental health and substance abuse.

Joshua is a 3rd year student at Cal State Fullerton majoring in Civil Engineering. Joshua enjoys reading books as a pastime for enjoyment and relaxation purposes. He is inspired by the strength and resiliency of his father, especially through the sickness and passing of Joshua’s mother. Joshua says: “I don’t know how my father was able to stay so strong through the whole ordeal. He showed me that if he could handle everything as well as he did, then there is nothing we can’t handle.” Joshua has given back to others in the holiday season by adopting families, offering gifts and holiday cards to those who are less fortunate.
Eliza graduated this past May 2012 and double majored in Political Science and Women’s Studies. She was the President of Mesa Cooperativa, a council that guides 16 Chicano Latino organizations. Eliza is inspired by her family, in particular her mother and grandmother.

My ambitious journey that lies ahead may be difficult, but I’m determined to create change within the world and walk along the footsteps of the inspiring people who paved the road to freedom.”
Maria is entering her 4th year as a Communications Studies major and plans to pursue a doctoral degree in communications. Maria is inspired by her mother’s strength. When speaking about giving back to the community, Maria says: “I plan on helping to empower individuals… I believe that I can be a good role model by being a mentor to children, because they are at a very vulnerable stage in life… I trust that the successful awakening of well-rounded individuals will help to advance our community as a whole.”
Gabrielle is entering her 2nd year at Cal State Fullerton as a psychology major. She plans to pursue a doctoral degree in psychology, preparing her to serve as a therapist for troubled youth. Gabrielle is inspired by the selfless love of her grandmother.

My passions are to help people understand themselves and the world in a deeper sense.”

She is very involved in missions work with her church and is inspired by the kindness of her cousin. Marina plans to pursue a career in fashion in New York City.

Being a proper lady comes with responsibilities that I love to do. For one, I am a huge advocate for philanthropy. It is very important that we serve our community, not with hopes of a reward for ourselves, but that the individuals receiving the charity feel blessed.”
