“I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to be awarded this scholarship. It has helped me in a lot of ways. A lot of people who come from where I come from, struggle with the idea of how they will pay for college or find places to live due to financial burden, so this [award] has helped relieve stress for me and my family.”
