About Crystal Mariscal
This scholarship is important to me since my story relates to many out there seeking hope for a better future. I became a mother at a very young age and ultimately a single parent of four kids. In the process I also overcame domestic violence. Unfortunately due to all of these circumstances I didn't have the opportunity to finish school like an average teenager or young adult would.
Years later, I slowly started taking classes and trainings in order to seek better opportunities. Such as traveling to Canada, Montana, Texas and many other places in order to enhance my career. I was able to accomplish all of this thanks to the many job opportunities I've had. This scholarship was a way to pay it forward.
