Aried Sanchez is motivated daily by having dedicated peers and being involved in clubs that further her accounting knowledge. Her achievements led to an internship with RSM, a top ten public accounting firm, where she learned new skills to navigate remote work. Outside of the classroom, she served with a nonprofit Help us Help, which provides food and clothing to underprivileged children in Mexico. She says, “Cal Poly Pomona has opened doors that I believe I wouldn’t have been able to open without them, through the constant encouragement from faculty or the support of many of the on-campus clubs. Receiving this scholarship represents how anything can be achieved with dedication and perseverance over any obstacles that may come your way.” Aried’s goal is to work at a large public accounting firm and open her own CPA firm. She is excited to be the first in her family to earn a higher education degree.
