How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:   It means that in some way I am special. Because of the hard obstacles in my life, a group of amazing people chose me to become a Daniels Scholar. As a Daniels Scholar I have the support I need in order to achieve my goals. This is a life changing scholarship for which I am extremely greatful and always will be.

What do you like most about being in college?   I love that I don't have seven classes back to back just like high school. I like the breaks in between classes and all the friends that I have made. I truly believe we all will be lifelong friends.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college? The greatest challenge for me is to wake up for classes. My mom isn't here to wake me up and make up go to school.  It has to be a self-motivated skill.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   This scholarship is well worth anyone's time.  Even though the process is very long, don't give up because the end is very rewarding.
