I am Jose Landeros. I am 17 years old, and I am part of the Class of ’22. I live in Southern California with my mom, dad, two sisters, and one brother. Out of my siblings, I am the oldest which means I am the first out of my family to enter a higher education. For me this is uncharted territory since neither of my parents received a higher education. Regardless of this, my parents are absolutely successful and excellent people who are very loving and supportive. I am entering college this fall ready for what is coming. I plan on majoring in engineering, which is very broad, so specifically I want to study electrical and electronics engineering. From a young age I have enjoyed forming my own creations with toys like Lego’s and that has not changed. Now however, I want to take this to a professional level by creating my own electrical systems, circuits, prototypes, etc. With this scholarship I can reach this goal by receiving the education necessary to obtain the skills that are essential to engineers.

Thank you very much for this opportunity.
