  “My parents always told me tu sola te pones tus propios limites, which translates to “you create your own limits.” I have always been a student that puts my education first. I always try my best to achieve my very best.”   
 Emily was awarded a Fresno Unified Scholarship. 

Scholarships are a lifeline for Fresno Unified students who are ambitious, strive to reach their highest potential, and are eager to attend college but cannot because of economic deficits.
