Establishing a Scholarship

"As I pursue my degree, I will always keep in mind that I am the first child to receive a form of higher education. It is because of you that I am able to make my immigrant family proud. They are the reason I strive to be the best version of myself and thanks to this scholarship, it has helped us stay on track with our finances. Thank you for allowing me to live up to the dream of going to college. It is because of your Foundation that this is possible.
