Danielle is a freshman from Quito, Ecuador, majoring in liberal studies.
"I chose to come to Fresno Pacific University mainly because it is a Christian university. I also received more financial help from FPU than any other college I applied for. My hope is to gain a Christian education that will strengthen my walk with God as well as give me a head start into society. My future plans are to graduate from FPU and then obtain my credentials to teach.
"The gratitude I feel for the scholarship money I was awarded is overwhelming. With the help of the scholarship money, I can attend Fresno Pacific without worrying about going into huge financial debt or putting any financial strain on my parents."
