Vanessa Segura-Casillas | ’24 M.A., Counseling & Guidance
“It’s an honor to be a recipient of this scholarship and to be recognized for my love and commitment to serving my community. I will continue to positively impact Hispanic and underserved communities by supporting students in their academic journeys. As a future school counselor, I strive to empower Hispanic youth in following their aspirations and pursuing higher education despite their obstacles. Choosing to pursue my M.A. in Counseling & Guidance at SJSU has been a wonderful experience. The knowledge I have gained and the connections I’ve made are immeasurable. Having opportunities like these to apply to scholarships that recognize the hard work and dedication of SJSU students is how we can get closer to bridging the equity gap in higher education.”
