How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:   Being a Daniels Scholar means so much to me. It is a network of individuals willing to help each other, as well as their respective communities. It is about being a leader in the best way one knows how with the tools inherited and learned.

What do you like most about being in college?   I enjoy all the information and opportunities college has exposed me to. Within my campus, alone, I am exposed to individuals from Kenya, Bulgaria, India, and Columbia. College has become more to me than learning a craft. It is a time to experience as much as I can.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?   The greatest challenge I have encountered in college has little do with the academic aspect of post-secondary education. It was about passion. Freshman year of college, I was struggling with loving my major, which at the time was Business Administration. I rethought my passions that year and made the switch to Mathematics. It was not always easy over the years, but passion made it worth it for me.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   If you are applying to be a Daniels Scholar beyond completing paperwork on time, it is important that you make use of your contacts in the Daniels Fund when you have questions or when you feel stuck. They are so helpful throughout the process.
