Last week we published a couple of articles about CSUF Entrepreneurship scholarships and in this week’s CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider Director John Bradley Jackson highlights the story of one of our CSUF Entrepreneurship scholarship winners. It’s a great story and we hope that you can read it.

When Karla Amador sponsored the Thrive Financial & Bookkeeping Services Entrepreneurial Scholarship she had Pamela Martinez Sierra ’18 in mind.

Since she was young, Pamela has wanted to improve conditions for her fellow Chileans and she sees becoming an entrepreneur as the best way to achieve that goal. Pamela knows that entrepreneurs are the catalyst for growth in any economy, especially in one of Chile’s poorer regions, and that is the main reason why she is an Entrepreneurship major at Cal State Fullerton.

Last week we published an article on her inspirational story and you should definitely read it.

And there are many other students like Pamela. That’s why we are happy to announce the John Iskandar Scholarship of Entrepreneurship sponsored by CSUF Entrepreneurship alumnus Fares Younis ’13. Fares is an inspiring person and he was gracious enough to sponsor two scholarships in honor of John Iskandar, his uncle, a man who had inspired him many times.

Stories like these are why I am proud to be the Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship. We are building a community of entrepreneurs and innovators that are doing a lot of good.
