How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:    It means a lot, without Bill Daniels’ amazing generosity, I wouldn't be in college.

What do you like most about being in college?    I love the independence that it has created in me, I have to be able to maintain a lot of different things all at one time. It is good practice for the future. 

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?    I think maintaining a good budget is the most difficult, life is expensive so be frugal.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   Don’t give up on it, it is a long process but it is completely worth it.
