Happy October! Nintendo is This Month’s Featured Sponsor
This month, we’re highlighting Nintendo of America. They were the first sponsor to commit for 2021, and we appreciate their continued support.
Nintendo’s mission is to put smiles on the faces of everyone they touch, and the Sequoia Awards scholarship recipients are definitely smiling thanks to the generosity of Nintendo. By creating new surprises for people across the world to enjoy together, Nintendo forged their own path beginning in 1889, when they began making hanafuda playing cards in Kyoto, Japan. Today, they share characters, ideas and worlds through the medium of video games and the entertainment industry.
In 2020, Nintendo of America sponsored a scholarship for Isabella Mattioli from Carlmont High School. Isabella has a long history of volunteerism starting before she entered high school. Since then, she has amassed several hours of service in a wide range of school and community activities. “Throughout high school, I have dedicated my life to serving others,” she said. “I may have been providing goods or services to individuals, but in return each one gave me priceless knowledge and kindness.
