“One of my goals is to definitely make a bigger difference – I know that here on the West Side there aren’t that many resources available to get help if you’re going through some type of trauma or substance abuse. I definitely want to help out in my community, because my community is very important to me, and growing up here just made me realize that somebody needs to step up and provide those type of resources” – Ashanti Ruiz, College Success Arizona Scholar from Phoenix, who graduated from Maryvale High School and is currently wrapping up her second year at Glendale Community College, from there Ashanti plans to transfer to Northern Arizona University to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Health, and eventually a Master’s Degree.
