Ximena Sanchez Martinez, Stanford Student
Ximena currently attends Stanford University and received a Sequoia Awards college scholarship because of her exemplary community service.
The first exposure Ximena had to serving her community was with the community organization, Project Read, where, during her freshman year, she became a weekly tutor. She dedicated the next three years to tutoring a student one-on-one.
That experience ignited a serving spark in Ximena, where she continued to serve the community at Sequoia High School. There she participated in:
•Dream Club, creating and leading performances and workshops
•The Student Activity Center, where she informed Spanish speaking families about orientation and gave school tours
•AVID, hosting, and leading study sessions and tutoring, in addition to fundraising for bike drives and prosthetics for amputees.
Ximena says, “Two of my biggest passions are working with children and social justice. As an undocumented student, I knew that opportunities would be limited for me. Still, during my freshman year, I learned that my citizenship status would not stop me from making a difference in my community.”
