Thanks to this scholarship, I was able to continue my studies and because I continued my studies, I have been able to grow as a journalist as well as a person.

Danelia Gomez, 2010 HAHMP Scholarship Winner

“I am in my last semester of college. In may I will be graduating as a Communication major with a Creative Writing minor. I am currently working with Houston on the Move, and I am also the Editor for my university’s literary magazine: Laurels. “The HAHMP Scholarship has made a great difference in both my academic and my personal life. I moved from Mexico to Houston to attend the University of Saint Thomas, leaving behind my family. Because I am not a U.S. citizen but hold an F-1 Visa, it has been extremely hard for me to find any kind of financial support; my first year of college my parents had to bear the weight of paying for the entirety of tuition and housing without any external help. Then, I was awarded with the HAHMP Scholarship and both my parents and I felt as if finally someone understood our situation and was willing to help us.

“The HAHMP Scholarship has also opened my eyes to a whole new understanding of the media world. With the different workshops that I was able to be part of as a recipient of the scholarship, I discovered the way real world media professionals work and reaffirmed my dream to become one.”

“I am in my second semester of graduate school and I’m the communications intern at the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. I’ll be living in Kansas City for the next few months.

“The HAHMP Scholarship gave me much more than financial assistance. It allowed me to work with other students and professionals during the workshops and network, which is key in this business. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had not attended the workshops and events through HAHMP.”

Jennifer Barrera, 2011 HAHMP Scholarship Winner

“The more I think about the time I was awarded the scholarship the more I know It was more than an investment to my career but my life.

“Fall 2011 was the most challenging semester of all. I got married and was pregnant during that time. The fact I didn’t have the funds to go that semester after my financial aid never awarded me any money. The scholarship was the fund that gave the plus to know I had to keep believing and turning forward to the essential of I am and where I am visioning to head.

“Now I am not longer only a young lady with goals and projects, but now I am a women who knows the biggest impact and influence tools to change a generation begins with my wonderful baby girl. and my married life. I’m still enrolled at the University of Houston knowing that I am preparing myself with different vision, mission and strategies to use my God-given potential whenever the time and opportunity comes by.
I haven’t graduate yet but I’m planning to graduate by Fall 2013.

“Thank you for the opportunity and the faith to know the scholarship was more than funds but was the only door open to walk in improvement. “
