Meet Manuela Jimenez

 “I am an immigrant and me and my family moved here to the US when I was in my junior year of high school. We came here with little money for my college education so this scholarship means a lot to me and my family. I hope to be a physical therapist someday and I will never forget this wonderful gift that you've given me.”
