Midory Otáñez - 2018 Johnston/Lesar Scholarship Award

Midory Fernanda Otáñez Murrieta is currently a full-time college student at Scottsdale Community College. She happens to be a DACA recipient and has taken full advantage of the benefits it has brought to her. Midory states,

"Yes, it can be hard at times but it will be worth it in the end." She is attending school in the hopes of completing her Hospitality and Tourism bachelor's degree. She has worked hard to get where she is. Not only is

she attending school, but she also works as a chef at the catering company ChefaGogo. Here she pursues her passion in the kitchen and hopes to advance her culinary art skills.


Midory would love to eventually run a restaurant and start her own someday. In order to prepare for her future she is constantly working and studying. Not only has she done all of the above, but she competed in and achieved 8th place in the FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) cake competition. She has done projects to help her community as well, by helping teachers during summer school and organizing events through the Culinary club. Midory hopes to continue to grow and excel in both her culinary and

hospitality aspects of her career.
