Miriam was one of the early winners of our scholarship program. There were many outstanding students that applied that year and Miriam was awarded the largest of the two scholarships that year.
We are very proud of her progress and determination and can’t wait to see where she goes in the future.
Upon receiving this scholarship, Miriam replied with following statement.
I am sincerely honored to have been selected as one of the recipients of the 2016 Kramerica Scholarship. Thank you for your generosity, with this scholarship I’ll be able to be one step closer to fulfilling many of my dreams in becoming someone great. Being an immigrant student and a DREAMER, this scholarship is motivation to continue dreaming, while working towards getting a higher education to provide my family, and myself, with a better lifestyle.
I will obtain my education at Colorado State University Fort Collins and will be a first generation high school and college graduate. I am very thankful for receiving your thoughtful gift. Thank you, thank you and a thousand times thank you!!
Thank you Miriam for inspiring us. We are so happy to have been a part of your journey.
