“This scholarship is extremely important to me because it provides me with financial assistance which will help reduce financial stress on both me and my family. This will also help me focus more on my education and pursuing my passions. Being the first in my family to go to college is both exciting and terrifying. I am so eager to start and yet a little nervous to leave my family and home. However, I know that breaking past this barrier will also help my siblings pursue their college dreams. This scholarship has enabled me to take a step forward in achieving my goals and making a brighter future for myself and my family. I am so grateful for this opportunity and thank you for your generosity.”
