How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:    Growing to be an open-minded individual with ethics and the right tools to succeed.

What do you like most about being in college?     L.O.V.E. the diversity.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?    In high school you were told what to do and what to take.  In college you must decide for yourself what's best for you, and that can be tough to decide.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?     Work hard and don't forget to breathe once in a while.  And yeah, it's great to go out and have fun, but don't forget what you're in college for.  Keep your goals in mind all the time. As a matter of fact, write 'em down.
