My volunteer experiences in Ghana and the Philippines gave me several opportunities to do what I love the most – caring for the people.

Meet Oliver

When Oliver was just a small child, he migrated to the United States with his family from Mexico. He had eye-opening experiences through Denver Public Schools in Colorado, that encouraged him to apply to the WU Scholars program. He became one of the first applicants accepted, and his continued connection with Western Union and the Western Union Foundation landed him an internship in the Internal Audit Department for multiple years.

With his experience, Oliver gained a broader perspective on the world, leading him to pursue big dreams for his future. His younger sisters now aspire to follow in his footsteps and recognize that higher education is within their reach.

“My future success continues to be defined by being present, having the courage to talk to anyone in the room, and the desire to build sustainable relationships.”
