I am entering my final year at Cuesta and hopefully transferring to Fresno State next fall. During my time at Cuesta, I have completed my general education and have received two structural welding certifications. I hope to transfer to Fresno State to get my Bachelor’s in Viticulture. I am very fortunate to have found careers that I genuinely enjoy doing. I look forward to what the future has in store for me. 

The scholarship has been very helpful, it has allowed me to buy books, pay tuition, cover a lot of expenses, and not worry about using out-of-pocket money to pay for school. In addition to my books, I was able to purchase a new computer since my old one failed and cover the gas for the lab I attend in SLO. The scholarship has allowed me to focus on school and be the best person I can be.
