Esmeralda Mireles: Ambassador, Dell Scholars Program

The newest class of Dell Scholars was announced on April 10th, 2015, helping another 300 low-income students get to college and receive a degree. So much more than a check, the Dell Scholars Program offers mentoring and support – well beyond academics and finances – to help students succeed. In welcoming this new class, Esmerelda Mireles, a current Dell Scholar Ambassador and a junior at the University of Texas at Austin, tells us what she’s learned through her journey as a scholar. From mentee to mentor, the program has changed her trajectory beyond anything she could have imagined.
