Paralympic Hopeful in Track & Field Scout Bassett and college student Maria Cedillo talk about using the past as motivation. Scout faced challenges at her first U.S. Paralympic Team Trials but went back to the drawing board to realize her dream of qualifying for Team USA. Maria overcame discrimination to become the first member of her family to attend university.
As part of Citi’s #StandForProgress, Citi invited six athletes from Team Citi to meet college students from Citi Foundation’s #Pathways2Progress initiative and explore how they define progress.
Citi wants to inspire Americans nationwide to set a goal right alongside America’s elite athletes. With #StandForProgress, you can share the small or big steps you want to take this year - from saving up for a vacation to buying a home - towards your goals.
