2019 Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to the 2019 Kramerica Gives Scholarship winners:

Abby Munoz

  • College: CU Denver
  • Major/Interest: BioChemistry – PreDentistry track
  • Start Date: August 25th
Why:

I smile a lot and I want others to as well. I particularly want to help low income families because I am from one and I know it’s difficult for them to get health care. It’s not up to par with other populations and I want to make sure they are able to get their dental needs met.

Elsa Ramirez

  • College: CSU
  • Major/Interest: Biology or BioChemistry
  • Start Date: August 27th
Why:

I excelled in these classes in High School and always liked science classes. My BioChem teacher was very passionate about the subject. I learned a lot from him. The careers in biology or BioChemistry sound very interesting and something I would like to have a future in.

Yonatan Kefle

  • College: Metro State
  • Major/Interest: Engineering
  • Start Date: August
Why:

My uncle talked to me about engineering as a possibility and when I started looking in to it I realized there are a lot of interesting careers in mechanical or civil engineering that I would like to do.

Courtney Russell

  • College: CSU
  • Major/Interest: Political Science
  • Start Date: August 21
Why:

Political Science is a good segue for me to go to law school. I’m interesting in Human Rights Law because I’m very passionate about it and want to make a difference in the world even if it’s on a small scale.

Loati Ballo

  • College: CU Boulder
  • Major/Interest: Undecided – possibly criminal law
  • Start Date: August 20
Why:

I’ve always been interested in criminal justice even as a child. I recently saw a series on Netflix “When Will They See Us?” based on a true story of how the criminal justice system failed african american boys in new york city and I want to change the system.

Redar Moo

  • College: CCA
  • Major/Interest: Law Enforcement
  • Start Date: August
Why:

After I get my associates degree, I’d like to go in to the Police Academy. My dad worked as security in our refugee camp and he worked very hard to protect our community. I was always interested in what he was doing and why he was so passionate about it. I have also been bullied my whole life and I want to be like my dad – help people and protect my community. I’m particularly interested in being a police officer who works at schools. It’s important they feel protected.

Edna Ramirez

  • College: CSU
  • Major/Interest: Engineering, biomedical or architectual
  • Start Date: August 27
Why:

Math and science have always been my favorite subjects. Engineering will help me use my skills in math and science. Last year in biology class, I learned more about careers in these fields and think it would be interesting to either work in a lab or work on an architectural site.

Methusella Rwabose

  • College: DU
  • Major/Interest: Political Science
  • Start Date: September
Why:

One day I want to work in government or possibly go back to my home country and run for office. There are many things that are not done right in our system, and I hope I can change that. My dad was a politician in my country and I want to follow in his footsteps.

Miranda Cruz-Mendoza

  • College: Metro State
  • Major/Interest: Political Science
  • Start Date: August
Why:

I’m interested in political science because it’s one of the first steps before law school. I have always been fascinated by immigration law, especially as it has affected my family first hand. Criminal justice runs in the family – my mom’s career is in criminal justice and my brother is studying it right now at Metro State. I would eventually like to become an immigration lawyer to help more people like my family deal with and understand the immigration system.
