Maria Patino Profile

Going to college can be tough, especially if you have to pay for it yourself. However, there are resources available to help you through the process.

Here is Maria Patino’s story. Maria is an interior design major who has taken advantage of scholarships and financial help, both of which have allowed her to concentrate full-time on her career without the need of a job. She recently won a national scholarship that more than 600 students applied for, but only 3 were selected to receive.

Besides being an excellent student, Maria also focuses on being the best mother she can be to her 11-ear-old son, Sebastian.
