Veronica Arreola graduated from Desert Mirage High School (DMHS) in 2016. While in high school, she was involved in AVID, and the Varsity basketball team, along with volunteering at church and taking honors courses. She graduated 5th in her class with a 4.2 GPA. Veronica is a third year scholar, she received the Dr. Carreon Scholarship her first year, and the OneFuture Coachella Valley scholarship her second year and this upcoming 2018-2019 school year. She will be starting her third year at the University of California San Diego with a major in Spanish Literature.
While in college Veronica has volunteered at The Preuss School, a charter school for low income students, and got involved in intramural sports, being a basketball referee. She has also learned to manage her time by balancing work and her classes. During the summer she interned with OneFuture Coachella Valley, helping the data team. Veronica hopes to graduate and earn her teaching credential, so that she can come back to her community and teach here.
She believes it is very important to show students the importance of pursuing a higher education, and let them know that it is possible for them to go on to college, and with enough effort and determination, anything can be accomplished.
