Julia Alunan is a full-time student attending New York City College of Technology pursuing a Bachelors of Technology degree in Hospitality Management. For the past three years she has been working to pay her own way through college. She came to the United States on her own leaving her family in Ecuador behind to pursue a college degree. It was a tough road since she knew very little English, but at City Tech she has made gigantic strides in achieving the goals she set out to accomplish. The Food and Beverage Scholarship Foundation would allow her to pursue her dreams and continue her studies without worrying about my financial expenses.
