Meet Our Founder

Andres Vargas, a first-generation college student of Colombian descent, founded this foundation. In just four months, it has provided scholarships to four students pursuing STEM careers.

"As a former student who struggled financially while studying, I learned the value of perseverance and the mantra "Si Se Puede!" (Yes, you can!). Now, as CEO of the Si Se Puede! Scholarship Foundation, I aim to support others facing similar challenges." - Andres Vargas
