Julie Majano spoke about her experiences at the board of trustees meeting on Monday, Oct. 21. “I would read that only if I got into the ivy leagues I would be able to go to college,” the Promise Scholarship recipient said in her speech.

However, after applying to grants and scholarships that were open to DACA recipients, she was able to afford to attend Montgomery College. At Montgomery College, she is also a part of Impact MC, which works to fund scholarships and help reach the United Nation’s sustainable development goals.

Majano spends a considerable amount of time doing community service and volunteering. Inspired by the public servants who helped her when she was a new immigrant, she is studying Public Health Sciences and hopes to go to the University of Maryland and eventually earn a Master’s Degree. Majano hopes, “to come up with ideas to make people’s lives more convenient and easy.”
