Since emigrating from Guatemala ten years ago, Ingrid continues to strive toward her goal of attaining higher levels of education and a career in the nonprofit business sector, despite the limitations and emotional challenges of being an undocumented student. In 2011, after hard work and dedication, she received her BS in management science and engineering from Stanford University.
At Stanford, Ingrid took an active role in the Latino community through leadership positions in many student organizations. In the summer of 2011, she completed a six-week fellowship serving low-income youth. She also plans to devote her time to studying for the GMAT and searching for opportunities that will give her experience in the nonprofit business sector. In the future, Ingrid wishes to pursue an MBA and fulfill her lifelong goal of becoming an entrepreneur and starting a socially responsible technology business.
