Coca Cola & The Hispanic Scholarship Fund! #DestapaSuFuturo

Hey All!

When I was attending NYU, even with student loans I still needed help and the one thing I looked to for help were scholarships. I would have never made it through school if it weren’t for the scholarships and help I received from one organization in particular, The Hispanic Scholarship Fund. They helped me so much through college with the expenses you can imagine come with going to a school like NYU and being in Film School as well.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund was one of the few organizations that believed enough in me to give me a scholarship for each year I was in school. I remember, I tried so many different organizations for scholarships each year I was in school and got rejected by almost all of them because my mother apparently made too much money.  The one organization that always gave me a scholarship was The Hispanic Scholarship Fund!

I am always very thankful to this amazing organization for helping me to obtain my goal in getting the amazing education I got at NYU. Just like Olympic Gold medalist Henry Cejudo, I set goals for myself and I achieved them. I achieved this with working hard in school (while also having a job and family) and going to school full time. Henry set goals for himself to win a Gold Metal and is now an Olympic Gold medalist. You can check out the video below to see how he feels about this amazing organization and special campaign they are working on together.

There is nothing you can’t achieve if you put your mind to it. And as an alumni of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, I wanted to share that Coca-Cola also has an extraordinary relationship with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund as well.

Coca-Cola has had a relationship with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund for more than 30 years and are committed to helping them meet their goal of having a college degree in every Latino household by the year 2025.  Along with HSF, Coca-Cola wants to motivate people to get involved and help make a difference.

Our culture is rich in music, food, family values and history. From now through October 31st, students 16 years old or older can apply for a scholarship HSF Application by answering three thought-provoking essay questions. First, Students must reflect on how their heritage affects their career goals, then the importance of education in their lives, and lastly their community service experiences.

If you have a teenager who is even part Hispanic and about to go to college, I highly recommend you check out this amazing program and partnership between Coca-Cola and The Hispanic Scholarship Fund! They can truly help you reach your educational goals!
