hlaa-scholarships-carolina-penaHLAA Scholars: Carolina Peña COL '17

One of our main goals at HLAA is to help the current students. This year, with the sponsorship of two HLAA Board Members, we were able to assist a current undergraduate Latina realize her dream of meeting Latina astronaut Dr. Ellen Ochoa. Carolina Peña, Harvard College Class of 2017, flew to Houston for the Harvard Club of Houston’s reception with Dr. Ochoa, where she was able to connect with her role model. We hope to continue these types of projects through a scholars-to-scholars program.
