Here is a great opportunity available for HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE STUDENTS and even EDUCATORS. This is an invaluable experience for students and educators alike! 

Elizabeth Morales, a first-generation student who achieved the seemingly impossible coming from humble beginnings, overcoming all hurdles to graduate from the University of Utah and is now an advocate for first-generation students. She brings her unique experiences and insights into her current role at the HUNTSMAN CANCER RESEARCH as the Programs Manager, where she champions diversity in biomedical and cancer research.

 In our riveting conversation, she shares her tips on how students can become self-advocates and transform their life experiences into motivation for reaching their goals. We navigate through the application process for a two-year cancer research program that invites students throughout our country to apply! With travel, food and lodging included, this is a one of a kind opportunity. She also shares the importance of internships.

The conversation takes an interesting turn as we delve into the importance of diversity in job applications. Learn how students from under-represented communities can beat the odds through self-advocacy, perseverance, and a learning mindset.

Elizabeth shares her experiences with Latinos in Action, a program committed to equipping students to become college and career ready. She discusses the impact of the program and how it's shaping future leaders. Finally, drawing from her personal journey, Elizabeth encourages listeners to reach out for help or advice and talks about the importance of a solid support system.
