Blanca Ramirez might be one of the busiest students you’ll find on the Cal State Fullerton campus. But still, she isn’t feeling overwhelmed.

“My grandfather is one of my biggest inspirations. He farmed by hand, without any tools until he was 92,” she said. “So, if he could work that hard all the time, I think I should be able to do so as well.”

Now 21 years old, Ramirez is on the cusp of a bright future. She’s a senior majoring in sociology and minoring in psychology. She’s a McNair Scholar. She’s done extensive sociological research at CSUF and Princeton University.

And she has one goal: to improve the lives of women around the world.
