Monique Pineros is enjoying life after SFIC and Catholic high school. Monique was one of the fortunate students to receive a partial tuition scholarship from The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children. “I thank the Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children for giving me this help and opportunity back when I was in high school.”
Monique, a graduate of Mother Seton Regional High School in Clark and Caldwell University, is currently a doctoral candidate in Physical Therapy at the Quinnipiac University in Connecticut and is just completing her first year there.
“Many good things have happened in the past year. The New Jersey Hospital Association selected me as one of their recipients for the 2014 Health Research and Educational Trust Health Career Scholarship. I was also selected to go on a service trip to Guatemala with the OT and PT departments at my school. The Diagnostic Imaging Department at Quinnipiac hired me as their graduate assistant, providing support to the department chair in the development of researching information and materials related to current and strategic planning projects, as well as providing translation services in Spanish at the Community Access Imaging Clinic for the uninsured in New Haven County.”
“Giving back, in any way possible, to the communities and those who have helped me is one of my priorities. I would like to share my story with other students. It is with the belief and support from people like you (the Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children and their donors) that I have been able to accomplish this much. Once again, thank you. May God bless you and keep you always healthy and happy.”
