Grateful for the support she has received along the way, Nieto Vazquez looks to turn her Stanislaus State Bachelor of Arts in Psychology into a career helping others. Graduate school is her next goal, as a member of the University Honors Programs and a McNair Scholar.

Jasmin Cornejo's journey to becoming a CAHSI Student Scholar is inspirational. Cornejo’s father was born in Mexico and her mother in Puerto Rico. Neither had an education beyond middle school, and even though she had moments of self-doubt, Cornejo never wavered in pursuing a higher education.
