Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship (Summer 2017)

Anaely Guerrero, originally from Lakeland, FL, is a proud recipient of the Summer 2017 Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. This award afforded her the opportunity to study abroad and expand her knowledge in global business. Additionally, she interned for two different companies, which provided hands-on experience in a variety of projects.

During the application process, Anaely worked closely with ONS. "ONS guided me throughout the whole Gilman application," she says. "Their help made me confident that I had a possibility of obtaining this prestigious scholarship. USF helped in the sense of providing students with resources like ONS. A lot of people are unaware of this office and everything they do for students."

Anaely attributes her success to family and hard work. "I am thankful for my parents for encouraging me to move forward, even when times were difficult," she says. "I came to the United States not knowing any English, putting me behind in my work and making it harder for me to be successful. With long days of school and tutoring I managed to get myself up and now proud to say I am a recipient of the Gilman National Scholarship."

In the future, Anaely plans to work for the government as a global business specialist or a global business consultant for a country/firm to expand their industry abroad.

Congratulations to Anaely on winning the Summer 2017 Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship!
