Westchester Community College
Country of origin: Paraguay

The openness of the faculty and the multiplicity of perspectives of the students are what makes Westchester Community College an outstanding institution.

Although I have just begun my undergraduate career, my plans are to complete a double major, and then transfer to a four-year university to complete my bachelor’s in Architecture. I am grateful to be able to attend Westchester Community College with the assistance of the Kathryn W. Davis Global Community Scholarship Program. The institution offers great opportunities and academic programs for all, including immigrants and non-traditional students.

I strive for excellence not just in academia but with everything I do and place the highest values on my personal excellence and integrity. My hope is that these qualities will distinguish me as a true leader who will have a significant impact on the world.
