Katy, 17 – FUNDED

Katy is a 1,000 Dreams Fund Scholarship recipient. She will be an incoming freshman at the University of California, Berkeley in the fall where she plans to study business administration.

How will you use the 1,000 Dreams Scholarship?

I will be using the 1,0000 Dreams Scholarship for technological, project, and conference expenses.

How is this scholarship helping you get closer to your dream?

This scholarship is providing financial assistance for the materials I need for my educational pursuits (outside of tuition). Moreover, it demonstrates the support that the 1000 Dreams Fund organization has in my goals.

What advice do you have for other young women who are wanting to pursue their dreams?

As a first-generation college student, I was largely unaware of most of the opportunities for youth. Speaking as a young person myself, so many people will be willing to share experiences or open opportunities should you just reach out and demonstrate your interest. The worst that can happen is a “no.”
