2018-2019 NASW Foundation Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial MSW Scholarship Awarded to NASW-IL Member

The NASW Foundation awarded the 2018–2019 Consuelo W. Gosnell Memorial MSW Scholarship to NASW-Illinois Chapter member Maybeth L. Gomez, a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. 

From the awardee: "I, Maybeth Lorena Gomez, am a proud Dreamer whom recently graduated from Northeastern Illinois University. I graduated with a major in Social Work and a minor in Psychology. I am currently waiting anxiously for my MSW Program to begin at the University of Illinois at Chicago Jane Addams College of Social Work. I will be entering as an Advanced Standing Student and will be part of the Jane Addams Child Welfare Traineeship Project. My field placement will take place at the Children's Home and Aid in the Foster Care Area. I will have the opportunity to work with families and youth in need of services and support. With assistance, I will also be determining the best interest and safety of youth in state ward ship. Following graduation, I aspire to work for a child welfare agency to develop more knowledge of the profession and later be able to open a non-profit organization that would benefit youth-at-risk, especially undocumented Hispanic youth, the way I benefited from a program when I was a child. 'What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.' —Henry David Thoreau"
