Rosa Moctezuma, MArtha BArrios Mead Scholarship REcipient
Rosa Moctezuma has been selected as the 2018 Martha Barrios Mead Scholarship recipient!
Rosa was herself a student of the program from 2005 to 2006. Rosa came back as a volunteer once she was of age because she loved her experience as a student and hoped to come back to make an impact on the lives of our children just like we were able to do with her! She will be attending Georgia State University in the fall and plans to continue volunteering with Los Niños Primero!
"Since the age of two, I have yearned to start school. My parents moved countries so that their children could have the education they never received. We packed our bags and moved to Sandy Springs where my parents started looking for preschools. Luckily my mother was able to find Los Niños Primero and I am forever grateful we stumbled upon a wonderful program where I was able to flourish into the woman I am today!" - Rosa
