2020’s Winner: Arleth Quintero

Migrating to Las Vegas as a Latinx woman did not let the adversity I was faced with take me over, but only empower me. I was determined to find a safe environment in which I could be myself without outside judgment. This past year I worked as a Volunteer Manager at the local Covid-19 Patient Center. Being a supervisor is challenging but it is a privilege. I train and assign volunteers and research resources and communicate with service providers. I like having the opportunity to develop my organization and leadership skills. But at the end of the day, I am most inspired by the people with whom I interact.
When I see others struggling, I am reminded that in some ways, I am still that little girl taken away from her culture, still learning how to adapt to a society that does not value me. However, I am no longer the little girl on the sidelines. I know that advocating for others is my true calling, and I will be an immigration lawyer one day.

I am incredibly grateful for The Nook Sober Living Scholarship for providing me with the support to further my education. With the help of the The Nook Sober Living organization, I’ll be able to cover some costs for the upcoming school year. Thank you again!
