TLF 2020 Undergraduate Scholarship Recipient Gabrielle Alcala
My name is Gabrielle Alcala, and I am currently a rising senior student at Indiana University, where I am pursuing my degree in Marketing and Social/Digital Media with a minor in Advertising. I chose to study marketing because of its variety of touch points within a business including creating influential campaigns to drive awareness of a business. At IU, I am involved in the American Marketing Association, which has taught me about different industries and professional development. It’s fascinating to see great concepts form into effective campaigns. 

I first heard about TLF through LinkedIn and Hispanic scholar groups. I applied to the scholarship because of the foundation’s great representation in the marketing industry and dedication to supporting minority students. TLF’s mission is something I stand behind because of its responsibility of investing in diverse populations. With this scholarship, I will continue to pursue my business degree without additional financial hardships. 

After earning my degree, I hope to become a mentor for underclassmen minorities while continuing the discussion of a more diverse tomorrow. Now more than ever, Americans need unified guidance and support to lead them in a positive direction. In addition, I hope to work in a marketing associate related role and join a diverse company that values its employees and the community. 

Beyond receiving the scholarship, I want to continue to stay involved with TLF because of the mentorship opportunities, corporate relationships, and job shadowing/placement programs. TLF truly cares about providing minorities with meaningful opportunities to excel in their careers, which is something I love about the organization.  I would like to thank all the donors and company partners for their generosity and dedication to supporting TLF and its students. Their support has impacted generations of scholars before me and will continue to impact scholars in their future career paths.
