Growing up, Jennifer Ramirez never believed that she could sing. In middle school a teacher convinced her to join choir, and from there her love of music grew. Now she is a 2014 Meyerson Scholarship Finalist and freshman at Southwestern.
"This scholarship allowed me to attend Southwestern where everyone has become family. Here, I can sing and show others who my Savior is through my music."
Ramirez auditioned for the scholarship during her senior year at Chisholm Trail Academy because she thought it would be a fun challenge. Other friends had gone before her, but Ramirez didn't expect to be a finalist. The opportunity enabled her to improve musically and better use her talents for God. She now sings in the Southwestern University Singers and often shares special music or sings in praise team.
Ramirez plans to be a lawyer so she can continue to use her voice for God.
"I want to be the voice for those when no one else will hear them."
