Meet Teresa

School: Gresham High School

When talking to Teresa, it’s hard to believe she is only a junior in high school. Her drive and optimism project a level of maturity unmatched by her peers. Teresa wants to go to college to become an immigration lawyer and to be the first female in her family to attend college. She is determined to set an example for her younger siblings and future children by earning a college degree. “When I’m older, I don’t want my kids to have an excuse because I didn’t go college,” she explains.

With her confidence, Teresa will no doubt reach her dream. “I don’t really see any obstacles,” she states. “I’m pretty open-minded. I won’t let money scare me off. I don’t think anything can stop me from going to college.”
