Project Description

Cecilia Polanco is from Durham, NC. At Carolina, she was a Morehead-Cain Scholar, an inducted member of the Order of the Golden Fleece (UNC’s oldest and highest honorary society) and a member of the Campus Y Social Innovation Incubator (CUBE), where she is continuing to grow her social enterprise: a food truck whose profits create scholarships for undocumented students. She credits her gap year volunteering in Italy, Spain, Sweden, and Australia with teaching her that nothing is impossible.
