Monica Figueroa is a freshman from Storm Lake and is undecided on an academic major. In high school, Monica was involved in several co-curricular activities including Art Club, Key Club, track, cross country and soccer. Since becoming a student at BVU, Monica has continued to pursue her diverse interests by becoming an active member of Esprit de Corps, AmeriCorps, Students of Diverse Populations (SDP), the Graphic Design Club, IMPACT and The Tack. Monica is also a member of the Dean’s Fellowship Program and a recipient of the Multicultural Scholarship.
“I am very grateful to be a recipient of the Multicultural Scholarship, but more than anything, I’m thankful that my hard work throughout high school has paid off enough for me to continue to study in college as a step towards whatever my future may hold,” says Monica. “I am very thankful for the many early and great opportunities BVU has provided thus far for me to continue my interest in art, serve and faith while earning my education.”
