GHCC & Emory Goizueta Business School $ 25,000 Scholarship Award Winner 2017
“As a Colombian and Latina, I see my origins in Latin America as coming from a brave, adaptable, and community-based culture, always with the objective to excel because of The hard-working, passionate, and energetic way of life from this part of the world that we share constantly drives us forward. I think as a Latina; I represent all of those qualities and bring that passionate, warrior Latin spirit to everything I do now and in the future. I applied and received the Executive MBA Scholarship given to two Members of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and with this incredible award, I will be able through my background and profession to become a Hispanic leader and driver of business and commerce in Georgia and nationally and help serve the Latino community and the GHCC now and in the future. Helping to continue my professional education, this award also provides a platform to become the bridge between our two regions. I will use everything that I have—all my passion, strong work habits, and Latina personality—to deepen and strengthen the Latino community here in Georgia and nationally in gratitude for this award. I believe we can work together now and in the future in every way to achieve the goals we share. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!”
