Welcome to ScholarMatch, Vanessa!
Student Spotlight: Yadilena Dances Folklórico!
We were dazzled when we received this photo from scholar Yadilena right before her folklórico performance on campus! Yadilena is a first year student at UCLA who intends to major in Mathematics. In her first semester, Yadilena joined Grupo Folklórico de UCLA, an organization dedicated to preserving Mexican culture at UCLA.
Folklórico is a traditional Mexican dance that emphasizes and celebrates folk culture, where women dress in bright and colorful emblematic dresses. Yadilena is extremely proud to showcase parts of her heritage and looks forward to promoting her beautiful culture while at UCLA. Congratulations on your stunning performance, Yadilena!
Supporter Spotlight: The Bon Vivants
We’re incredibly lucky to partner with so many community organizations and companies that are located right in the Mission District. We’d like to give a special shoutout to our newest community partner and neighbor, The Bon Vivants! To help support our student scholarships, their team has crafted and is currently selling these intricate, handmade tiki mugs, where all proceeds will be donated directly to ScholarMatch!
Interested in purchasing your own mug? Stop by Bon Voyage on 17th and Valencia Street! (And while you’re there, we highly recommend trying out their scrumptious cocktails – you won’t regret it!)
