Milagros Róbelo, president of Debate Club, LGBT, (F)eminist (I)ntersexuality (G)ender-neutral (H)elpful  (T)ogether Club , and Latino Student Union, is the third in her family to win the POSSE scholarship. With this scholarship, she will be attending Kalamazoo College in Michigan State.

 

“I think the pressure of having two siblings going through that process and winning it made it ten times harder for me to go through the same process,” said Róbelo.

 

This foundation “is rooted in the belief that a small, diverse group of talented students—a Posse—carefully selected and trained, can serve as a catalyst for individual and community development,” according to Posse Foundation. Their goals are to enlist students with different backgrounds, help create more welcoming campuses to diversity, and keep students on check to take on leadership roles.

 

To become a Posse scholar, Milagros went through three rounds. In her first round, she was placed in a room with 100 other students. They were divided into different small groups where they had to do different activities such as mini discussions, presentations, and build stuff with legos. This round was created to show if they had the ability to be a team leader and cooperate with others as a team.

 

In her second round, she had a one-on-one interview where she was interviewed by two posse staff. “I felt more confident in this round than I did on the first because I talked about myself and I’m good at that,” said Robelo.

 

Her third round consisted of 20 kids who were Kalamazoo finalists, the president of the school, an admissions officer, and two professors. This round was very similar to the first round, where they would divide them into small groups and do similar activities.

 

Two hours after she finished her last interview, she was eating dinner with her family when she received a phone call from Posse, and it was the president of Kalamazoo. Robelo recounted the story, “the president answered and he said, ‘we forgot to ask you one more question, do you have winter coats for Kalamazoo?’” A Posse staff congratulated her on her success, in which she celebrated with donuts.
