"Born and raised in Arequipa, Peru, Cecilia Mansilla moved
to the San Francisco area when she was 15 years old and
learned English when she was 16 years old. She secured
college scholarships to all the schools where she applied
and ultimately received her Bachelor's Degree in

hopes to become involved in charities for real life
survivors and would like to mentor young girls on pursuing
higher education and career goals.
