After receiving the wave of acceptance letters, seniors began their next phase for college — applying for scholarships. As a student of the Medical CORE class and treasurer of MEDiC, Monica Men plans to pursue nursing in the future. She applied for the medical scholarship through the Medical ROP program, which required her to write about her future goals and toughest challenges.
After reviewing applicants from six other schools in the district, the Women’s Division Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce awarded her with a scholarship towards her nursing career. Monica was presented with a certificate from Congress recognizing her as the winner. Monica comments, “I was really happy and excited that I got this scholarship because I applied for it last minute. I wasn’t expecting it.”
For students taking Ms. Desai’s medical class in the future, she adds, “Be alert in her class because there are so many medical scholarships to apply for. Taking her class is a good opportunity to find scholarships and internships. Lastly, I need to thank Ms. Desai for inspiring me ever since she came to this school. I bonded with her and she taught me what I needed to do and which classes I needed to take in order to become a nurse.”
