May 22, 2017 - Why did you choose Trinity Washington University? I chose Trinity Washington University because of its historical background of being the first school in DC for women. I also liked that Trinity was close to home yet far enough to get a break from home. Originally, I didn’t plan on going to Trinity; however, later when I sat down with my mom and mentor to check financial aid, scholarship, and tuition costs, Trinity ended up being the most affordable school. I’m glad that Trinity ended up being my school! How will you use your education to become a dynamic leader in … Continue reading

May 14, 2017 - Why did you choose Trinity Washington University? I chose Trinity Washington University because of the uniqueness, resilience and power that is demonstrated through the university’s name and what Trinity represents for women.

I will use my education to become a dynamic leader in my community through knowledge, advocacy and law. As women, we are constantly limited to what we are able to do to excel and I … Continue reading

Kelly Escamilla ’17, English Major

May 8, 2017 - Why did you choose Trinity Washington University? I chose Trinity because I wanted to attend a University with small class sizes so that my professors knew me by name and could work closely with me. This intimacy reassures me of my academic agency. I also wanted to go to Trinity to immerse myself in an environment where I could experience true sisterhood. I realized that not many people get to experience this, and I wondered would I ever be in a space where I could bond with other women without the intrusion of males. A space where we could relate to each other and embrace each other because we are … Continue reading

Kendra Colbert ’17, English Major

April 17, 2017 - Why did you choose Trinity Washington University? Where I’m from, it’s hard to have hope of a better tomorrow. I realized I didn’t want to wait for things to happen to me but that I wanted to create change. I wanted to help others like me who were also feeling hopeless. I wanted to serve as a role model for my eleven brothers and sisters. They deserve to know that success is possible for people who look like them. I honestly didn’t know a lot about Trinity until Accepted Students’ Day in 2014. On that day, I knew this was … Continue reading

April 4, 2017 - Why Did you choose Trinity Washington University? I chose Trinity Washington University because it was a small campus filled with so much history and greatness. I discovered a lot about Trinity’s history when I first applied and when I moved onto campus. I greatly enjoyed learning the story of how Trinity began. Years later, the university continues to be a great representation of what it means to be a Trinity scholar and Trinity woman. How will you use your education to become a dynamic leader in your community? The knowledge I have gained throughout the years here at Trinity has been immense. Not only have … Continue reading

February 10, 2017 - How did you choose Trinity Washington University? In May 2014, I was awarded TheDream.US Scholarship – a national scholarship for Dreamers (undocumented students) who have the drive and passion for higher education but otherwise lack the financial means to achieve it. They provide financial assistance with tuition, fees and books in order to complete an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in a career-ready field. This program was made possible by the introduction of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2012 – an executive order by President Obama that grants undocumented youth a two-year renewable reprieve from deportation, as well as … Continue reading

Charlene Valdez ’17, Biology Major, Chemistry Minor

January 30, 2017 - Why did you choose Trinity Washington University? I chose Trinity Washington University primarily because I believed the environment would allow me to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. I also chose Trinity because of the smaller classroom setting which would allow me to develop meaningful bonds with my peers and professors. I believe that Trinity helps to transform each individual in a positive fashion and that without the internal support within the college, I would not be the woman I am today. How will you use your education to become a dynamic leader in your community? My Trinity education has provided me with … Continue reading

Heidi Fuentes ’19, Psychology Major, Education Minor

January 18, 2017 - How did you choose Trinity Washington University? When deciding which college to attend, I wanted an environment where I felt comfortable engaging in the classroom, and on campus activities. I attended one of Trinity’s shadow days, and I knew I could excel academically at Trinity. The small class sizes at Trinity make it easier to participate in class. I wanted to be able to connect with my peers and professors. How will you use your education to become a dynamic leader in your community? Before I began my education at Trinity, I was shy and did not speak up; but, … Continue reading

Carolina Turcios-Sorto ’19, Criminal Justice Major

December 21, 2016 - I chose Trinity by evaluating the best possible choice for me. I was accepted by several other schools, however Trinity was a better option because of its size. At many state schools, students receive very little attention from their professors. For me, the personal attention and close relationships with the faculty is an important part of learning and being successful. I chose Trinity because I knew it would be a good experience, but the smaller, and more personable, community would be an added benefit to my success. Continue reading

Elizabeth Thorp ’18, English Major

December 7, 2016 - How did you choose Trinity Washington University? I chose Trinity due to its location and size. I come from a very small town; so, when deciding on a college, I wanted to attend a small campus in a large city. Trinity was the only university I visited in the DC area that that was centrally located in a large city but close-knit enough that I felt comfortable relocating here from my hometown.
