Congratulations to the winner of the 2019 Striving For Justice Scholarship, Romina Cabrera!
“My name is Romina and I’m 22 years old. I moved to the United States two years ago to pursue a degree in Psychology, which I had already started in Uruguay, my home country. My goal is to help other people lead their best lives despite the difficulties they might face. I currently attend County College of Morris in New Jersey. Here, I was given the opportunity to work as a peer mentor for students with developmental disabilities, which I will continue to do in the Spring semester, and hopefully throughout my career.
Winning this scholarship makes me feel immensely proud because it shows me others besides the people I work with appreciate my dedication and efforts. This honor confirms my belief that helping others achieve their goals is valuable and important to society as a whole. The prize will also help me pay towards my tuition and I am extremely grateful to Van Cleave Law for it.”
