Besty Landin is a second-year student at Arizona State University, where she is majoring in Finance with a minor in Spanish. She is set to graduate early but plans to make the most out of her college experience.
In high school, Betsy was part of the Be a Leader Foundation and played the violin for the advanced mariachi at Rosie’s House, a music academy nonprofit. She also took so many dual enrollment classes in high school that she earned an associate degree before starting at ASU.
“Betsy has always been very studious. She always had in mind she would go to the university and as her parents, we always let her know that we would be there to support her,” Betsy’s mom Eluzai Landin said. “As her mom, I am filled with pride every time I say that my daughter is at ASU.”
Growing up, Betsy’s parents always made sure she had the support she needed. They have played the biggest role in her life when it came to deciding if she would be attending college.
“They both have done so much for me; it would be a dream come true for them to see me walk that stage,” said Betsy.
Betsy has been working for the Arizona Coalition for Change as a Voter Registration Canvasser, where she helps Arizonans understand how important it is to exercise their right to vote.
“I have learned how important it is to get out and vote during these upcoming elections,” Betsy said. “There are so many people out there that are able to use their voice and have a say in what goes on in the national and local elections but choose not to. It’s honestly sad that those who want their voices heard are not able to, but those who have the right to do so don’t partake in making a possible change in the world.”
Betsy is looking forward to finishing school because she knows her hard work will pay off!
