2022 Scholarship Winner: Soliel Teresa Lara
My name is Soliel Teresa Lara and I am a first-year student at Pepperdine University. I am from Mexico and Puerto Rico but mostly grew up in different parts of Mexico. Due to my passion for writing, I’m majoring in Journalism. My future goal is to potentially work at a Magazine or Newspaper company and write inspiring articles and entertain the world with positive media.
“Winning this scholarship means the world. I am very honored and excited to be this year’s winner. Thank you for the contribution to my higher education and being part of one of the reasons I become a Journalist. My biggest inspiration in life is my parents. They have gone above and beyond to give me and my sister the best education and life possible. They have sacrificed so much and I’m very grateful and privileged to call them my parents. Writing this essay gave me an opportunity to write their inspiring story. My mom and dad drastically changed their lifestyles to try and give me the best life. When I gave them the news about me winning this scholarship, they were ecstatic. My biggest goal in this life is to be able to make them proud and one day be able to repay them for everything they have done for me and my sisters. Thank you for choosing my story as this year’s Selfless Parent Scholarship.”
