Fabiola Garcial (Mexico)

“I did not choose to be born somewhere else. I chose to be a good person.” 

“I earned a full ride scholarship to an amazing college with the help of Golden Door Scholars and my brain, to a sigh of relief. I wanted everyone to know that an immigrant got a full ride scholarship. That I was capable of doing that and so much more.”
