Diversity Advancement Scholarship
University of Notre Dame
“I embrace who I am and my diversity, as it is what makes me unique and gives me my edge.”
Hello, I am Luiza Vara. I am a Brazilian from the very sunny Phoenix, Arizona and a part of Desert Vista High School’s graduating class of 2018. I embrace who I am and my diversity, as it is what makes me unique and gives me my edge. I plan on attending the University of Notre Dame for the accredited bachelor’s degree in architecture to further my aspirations of becoming a well-trained and diverse architect. Over the course of 5 years I intend to develop my passion for cultures, including an abroad year in Rome. Architecture is my calling and I hope to become very successful in my destined field.
