Jhan's Story

I discovered my passion for forensic science when I first started researching careers that interest me. At that point, I realized that whatever my career is going to be, it will include stopping crime and serving justice to others through science. This field of study wonderfully combines my love for science with my desire to help others. Crime rates continue to rise exponentially, and it is becoming a grave problem in the United States. This must be stopped, and with my love of science combined with my undeniable desire to help and protect others, I know I can make a change in society. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to make my country safer to live in. I am certain that this is the right path for me.

Attending Centenary Summer Scholars will help me pursue my passion for forensic science because it will allow me to gain more experience in this field that I would otherwise not receive until college. I am a first generation soon-to-be college student that comes from a low income household, and I unfortunately don't have access to the tools necessary to get a head start on my dream. Centenary Summer Scholars will allow me to change this and more.

A Note from Ms. Angeles, Jhan's Teacher

Jhan's work ethic and drive contribute to much of the success he has found in our school. I know that these skills will transfer to the outside world and to his time at Centenary Summer Scholars. Jhan finds every opportunity to pursue his interests and education; proactively working to prepare for every opportunity and challenge he is presented with in life. Jhan's summer at Centenary will also offer some insight into what a career in forensic science could look like in the future.

My Wishbone campaign is fully funded!!

I would like to thank everybody who donated to my campaign so I can attend Centenary Summer Scholars to study forensic science. This would only be a dream without your help. I would like to give special thanks to Ms. Angeles, my Wishbone advocate and college advisor, for spreading to others about my campaign. I’m currently taking the final steps to register for my summer program. I just need to fill out a few forms and health information. Once again, I thank everybody who helped me achieve my dream.

Success! Ms. Angeles helped Jhan raise $1,295
