My name is Lupe Sudano. I was born and raised in West Texas, which is also where I started my education and career in Higher Ed. I have been in my profession since 2003, primarily as an advisor throughout different colleges and universities in Texas. I love this profession and have enjoyed seeing all my students move forward in their achievements. I am currently attending Western Governors University and pursuing my Masters in Management and Leadership.
I am truly grateful for this scholarship; it is a huge blessing. I cried the moment I read the email. I felt so many emotions looking back at everything I have been through and where I am today. It is humbling to share my personal experience with others to help them overcome the stigma of divorce and start a new chapter in their life.
My name is Yohana Beraki and I am a graduate student at Boston University studying Mental Health Counseling specializing in children and adolescents. I am originally from Indiana and attended Purdue University to earn my bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Young people are my passion and I hope to work towards ending the stigma surrounding mental health.
Receiving this scholarship is truly an honor. I am so thankful to the scholarship committee for selecting me for this award. The stigma surrounding divorce should be erased and I hope to incorporate this mindset into my work with families in the future.
