Catrina had a difficult family life and struggled at times to find the encouragement she needed. "The family association became my ASU family — a consistent source of support at school," says Catrina. She often volunteered with other Sun Devil Family Association scholars on community-service projects and made friends along the way.

She was the first in her family to graduate from high school, so going to college was never something she took for granted. She says she is proud to know that she has set a good example for her brothers and sisters. She's taught them the value of education and the importance of a college degree.
"Everything I've been able to experience — and everything I will become — has been made possible through the generous contributions of parents, like you," she says.
