Tatiana Chavez, moved from Peru at the age of 14. Upon arriving she was enrolled as an eighth grade student but didn’t know any english. She had to work hard to learn how to speak and communicate her feelings through a foreign language. However, she feels blessed to be living the American Dream, knowing that through hard work, dreams can come true.She is now 25 years old and a mother of a beautiful 7 year old daughter. She graduated from high school with a high GPA and while pregnant with her daughter. Post high school she knew life would be difficult due to her situation but decided to stay focused on the positive side of things. She knows that she has a beautiful daughter that pushes her and inspires her to accomplish hard things. Through hard work, she graduated from Weber State University with a Bachelors of Science in Health Administrative Services. Through her hard work, she achieved several awards, namely; Dr. William E. Smith, Award of Excellence for Excellence in scholarship, Departmental Honors Certificate, and more.Right now she is working on obtaining her Master’s degree in Health Administration. Five years from now she wants to be independent, providing a home for her and her daughter. She is an example for her daughter and single mothers everywhere, that they can do anything.

We are so grateful for Tatiana and her example she is to her daughter and single mothers. We commend her for her positive energy and optimistic outlook on life.
