2022 Winner: Gabriela Rodriquez

Biography: “My name is Gabriela Rodriguez. I am a recent graduate from Edinburg High School in Edinburg, Texas and an incoming freshman at Texas A&M University. Growing up in a low-income immigrant family, higher education has always been my utmost priority. It is because of my background that I have chosen to pursue a Bachelors of Arts degree in History on a Pre-Law track. Upon my degree compilation, I plan to continue my education in a renowned law school where I will work my way to becoming an immigration attorney. My prospective career will not only allow me to provide immigrant families with a secure future, but also prove that financial privilege has no correlation to success. Additionally to my aspired legal career, I hope to one day work as a U.S. Senator and help socially develop our beloved country further. Outside of my academics, I love to read books, write literature, and play my guitar. I am thrilled to see what the future has in store for my family and I. Greatness often originates from small beginnings and it is that belief that has shaped me into who I am today.”

Gabriela’s Reaction: “I am deeply grateful for this scholarship provided by the generosity of Hammers Law Firm law firm. Pecuniary hardships have always posed a burden throughout my life and it is enlightening to see that a distinguished law firm has taken my education into consideration. The funds provided by this scholarship will allow me to cover the costs of everyday necessities, text books, and school supplies. Thank you so much for your generous contribution to my education as well as your encouraging support. My aspirations will be possible thanks to the charitable efforts of the Hammers Law Firm law firm.”
