When sociology senior Abbey Marino returned from her study abroad program in Thailand, she was not quite the same person. Her inquisitive and outgoing nature was now fueled by a passion for social justice. She found her opportunity to make a positive impact in Tulsa through the Mine Fellowship.
Stephanie Mandujano personifies the definition of determination. As the first person in her family to attend college, she is blazing the trail for her younger siblings. The Tulsa native recalls a drive to succeed that began at an early age and says she always knew she would continue her education beyond high school. Acceptance letters arrived from The University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, the University of Arkansas and The University of Tulsa. Mandujano’s heart told her that one stood apart from the others.
