At the Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute we are proud to recognize our scholars. As a first generation college student majoring in Finance and Information Technology, senior, Gabriela Redhead has made our Seton Hall community proud. Gabriela's time at Seton Hall University has allowed her to be apart of a community that inspires and motivates her to do her best. As an over qualifying student, Gabriela has been granted various scholarships including the Joseph & Carmen Ana Unanue Student Scholarship, The Entrepreneurship Scholarship, Gerstein Entrepreneurship Scholarship, CIT Scholarship, and has received recognition from National Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF).
Gabriela demonstrates an indomitable spirit to succeed through her endless hours of commitment to her community and academic excellence. The Unanue Latino Institute creates opportunities to its students by providing scholarships and leadership programs to exceptional students of all ethnicities and majors. "The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute's generous scholarship allowed me to attend Seton Hall " Redhead said, "The Unanue Scholarship has made it easier for me to focus on my school work without having to worry about school debt".
As a member of the The Éxito Leadership Club, Gabriela has had the opportunity to grow as a professional. The Éxito Leadership Club is a leadership development program established by the Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute at Seton Hall. The educational goals of this program are to mentor, guide and develop participants to become professional and community leaders. Gabriela was one of ten students who were exclusively selected to be apart of this club. "The Éxito Club gave me the opportunity to connect with other professionals. By listening to my mentor's advice I was reassured that finance was the career path for me" Gabriela said.
Gabriela has taken advantage of all of the opportunities available to her. This summer Gabriela had the opportunity to intern at JP Morgan in New York City as a private bank summer analyst. In the future, Gabriela wants to open a micro-loan finance company that will help and provide opportunities for low-income families to start entrepreneurship businesses. As co-founder of Seton Hall University's Association of Latino Professionals of America chapter Gabriela's leadership capabilities provided further opportunities for joining members. Most of which were offered internships or full-time positions.
Gabriela Redhead will be graduating this upcoming May 2016 and will continue to be an inspiration to our Hispanic community as she takes everything she has learned from the Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute to embark on her next venture. We wish you all the best Gabriela!
