Meiricet Hernandez

Student, University of Texas at Austin

One of our board members, Garrett Maples, had this to say about our scholarship recipient


“Meiricet stood out to the committee for her courage and trueness to self that showed through her application. She took the board through her journey of shifting from extrinsic motivation to intrinsic, becoming more comfortable being with herself through good times and bad. This strength manifested when she faced external pressure to follow a specific path (becoming a doctor) and stood up to friends and family with her own true passion of working as a geologist. Time and again, we were inspired by her stories of resilience and standing up for herself.”


Meiricet plans to attend The University of Texas at Austin pursuing a degree in Geology. The Envisioning Greater Success Foundation is excited to support her as she pursues her dreams!
