How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:   Being a Daniel's scholar means that I have been given a chance to obtain a college education, to become a leader, and to give back to society. Without the Daniel's Fund, I'm sure things would look much different for me.

What do you like most about being in college?   My favorite thing about college is meeting new people. I love to make new friends and connections that will last me a lifetime.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?   The greatest challenge so far is balancing all of my activities. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with all of the things I am involved in.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   If you are applying to be a Daniel's scholar you need to first realize that it is not just about the money, being a Daniel's scholar is way of life. You must represent yourself and the program to the best of your abilities.
