Karen Urbina eagerly joins the GMS Program as one of the new Program Assistants, and brings her experience working with diverse groups of people and students. Karen worked as an Academic Advisor for the TRIO Talent Search Program for 5 years, serving over 600 low-income, first generation middle and high school students in the East Los Angeles area. Karen enjoys mentoring students in all aspects of the college application process.
I am passionate in helping first generation students and their families achieve their educational goals. It’s very rewarding to work with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, and the dedicated team that makes this reality come true for me every day.
