2017 Winner 

"My name is Lizbeth Meza, and I am a third-year Kinesiology student studying at Oregon State University. I am from Salem, Oregon and I am the oldest out of my three siblings. I am a first generation college student. My goals are to become an occupational therapist to help underserved and underrepresented communities, and to achieve comprehensive growth on a professional level. The profession that I am pursuing are for those who have no access to health care, for the low-income families, for the marginalized communities, for the people who do not have easy access to education or greater knowledge, and for equity and social justice.  I am passionate in helping people, and in settings examples for the generations after. I have the mentality of changing the world, one life at a time. I would love to make a difference and have a positive impact on people’s lives. I believe that having the opportunity to receive a college education and scholarships such as the Gamma Alpha Omega Scholarship Fund will help me achieve my goals, hoping to add value to the local and Latinx community"
