For the Spring 2023 semester, AFFCF is proud to fund a total of 73 scholars attending community colleges and universities in and outside of Arizona. Jazmin is one of our scholars and this is what she says about being an AFFCF Scholar:
“My name is Jazmin and I’m currently a student at Pima Community College. I decided to major in Liberal Arts. One day I want to be a social worker to help improve the lives of young teenagers who are in a similar situation or worse than I was. I want them to know they aren’t alone.
“Every day I am reminded that my past does not define me or my future. The AFFCF scholarship has truly made my dreams of going to college a reality and I’m so thankful.”Jazmin, AFFCF Scholar
‘Being a part of the AFFCF scholarship program has help me to tell my story and let other people know the mountains I’ve had to climb to get to where I’m at now. Every day I am reminded that my past does not define me or my future. The AFFCF scholarship has truly made my dreams of going to college a reality and I’m so thankful.”
