Agtang is currently a nursing student at Hawaii Pacific University where she just finished her freshman year. She has also worked at Taco Bell in Waianae for two years.
The Live Más Scholarship is designed to help innovative students ages 16 to 26 who want to make a positive impact on their community. The scholarship is way for them to pursue unique passions that may not fit into traditional “academic” or “athletic” scholarships. In addition to financial support, the Taco Bell Foundation gives recipients access to connections and opportunities.
