2018 Aliento Fellows
Meet our 2018 Fellowship Cohort! They will be part of our Arizona's Future Education Awareness Campaign in their own schools.
Student at Bioscience High School
"Working with Aliento will allow me to expand my reach and will help me reach my goal of educating DACA and undocumented students along with helping to increase the overall affordability of a higher education."
Student at Arizona State University
"I am passionate about advocating alongside undocumented and DACA students for access to higher education because I know, from my experiences as a student at ASU, how critical higher education is in enabling us to attain our dreams."
Student at Westwood High School
"I believe everyone deserves an education, no matter their origin and status. It is critical that we educate the youth on this issue in order to create a support movement within our high schools."
Student at Brophy College Preparatory
"Having education is a human right, and although it is not being directly taken from us, it most definitely is in a very subtle and indirect way, through this opportunity I want to give my all towards this battle for the furthering of education for my fellow classmates."
Student at Paradise Valley Community College
"Since I was a little girl, I have had the dream of serving people as a doctor. I always pictured myself in another country treating kids in pain due to poverty and war. It is a vision of serving humanity with my gifts and talents. Education is something I treasure with all my heart and whenever it is attacked I feel like my whole world is coming to an end. We need to let our love for an education and our nation keep us strong enough to keep fighting."
Arizona’s Future campaign aims to ensure all Arizona students - regardless of immigration status have a path to optimize their talents, skills, and abilities in their home state.
