Jacqueline Urzua  -  Calistoga High School
One of my greatest talents in life is my capability for furious determination and perseverance.  When I was just five years old, I discovered my passion for soccer.  My capable coaches and my very supportive parents helped me to improve my confidence, concentration and composure so I could fight my way thru difficult situations and obstacles.  It makes me proud to come from a hardworking ancestry and reinforces the idea that nothing will get in the way of my goals and dreams.  I have also applied this feeling of motivation to my academics by earning a 4.23 GPA including 10 Advanced Placement  classes.  My goal is to major in Sports Medicine at UC Davis.  I am proud to have the qualities of dedication and determination so that I can help, give back and contribute to my Latino community by touching many Latino lives around the world.
Estefani Gomez-Carrillo  -  Saint Helena High
As a young Latina, Estafani has overcome many struggles in her life – an immigrant parents’ divorce, abuse, disability in her family and the death of her half sister. All of these struggles strengthened her motivation to achieve her goals and to become a respected educated professional in the medical field. She thanks her Summer Search mentor, Molly Curley O’ Brien , for always being supportive in her times of need. Estefani says “She offered me clarity in my foggy moment times” and “helped me to realize my potential.” Estefani’s goal is to use her Latino ancestry and her advanced education to open doors for others through a shared culture and common struggle.
