Lucia fell in love with the written word at a young age as a source of light against the dark cloud of loneliness she grappled with. Now, she hopes to have a career as a journalist and author so she can be a voice and light for those who face similar struggles.
Her references commend Lucia’s continuous pushing outside her comfort zone in her work, community, and school activities as someone not inclined to speak up. In particular, they praise her value as a bilingual Spanish speaker who helps translate at school functions to make sure every family’s voice is heard.
Currently a senior at Pescadero High School, Lucia plans to study English at CSU Monterey Bay.
