Coca Cola Recipient
Kristina Alvarez

Public Health major

My name is Kristina Alvarez and I am a first-generation college student. I am a Public Health major with a minor in Biology. After graduation, I plan to get my masters degree in nursing and specialize in pediatric nursing. I have a passion for working with children and my years at SCU have afforded me many opportunities to do so. I was able to volunteer at a pre-school my sophomore year and used my major internship requirement to teach healthcare education at schools in Bali, Indonesia. The money I receive from this scholarship will help me pay for my traveling expenses this school year because I am commuting. It will also help me pay for my books and other school supplies I will need to finish my last year strong.
