TLF 2020 Undergraduate Scholarship Recipient Eduardo Olivares
My name is Eduardo Olivares and I am currently a second-year student at the University of Oregon where I am pursuing my degree in advertising and business administration. I wanted to get my degree in advertising and business because I want to work with a creative team and help inspire other people of color. 

I first heard about TLF through my academic advisor. I wanted to apply for the scholarship because I wanted to network with students all over the nation and build connections with the Lagrant foundation and all the companies they work with. I believe in TLF’s mission because they truly care about the success of all the recipients and are always there providing support and opportunities. 

With this scholarship, I am now able to pay for my college education and also continue to build my business. Once I earn my degree, I want to do something I love and give back to my community. I want to pursue these goals because my community has always been there for me and I want to inspire other young people that were in the same position I was in. Bringing diversity into my field of work is important because we bring new perspectives and cultures that benefit everyone. 

I want to thank the TLF foundation for their efforts in diversifying the advertising and public relations workforce and continuing to fund the dreams of many young people of color.
