How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:    It means a great deal to me to be a Daniels Scholar. I feel a sense of pride knowing I am living a legacy that Bill Daniels left for me and all the Daniels Scholars. To be a Daniels Scholar it means I must do my best to better myself, the community, and the world!

What do you like most about being in college?    I like many things in college, but the thing I like most is learning from wonderful professors and being around others who are there to learn as well.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?    The greatest challenge in college has been turning down those outside forces, including drugs, drinking, partying, etc.  Anyone can say no, the question is will you?

The advice I could give to someone applying for this prestigious award would be to be yourself, do not hide the happenings that made you who you are today, share with the staff of the Daniels Fund why you deserve this scholarship, no one is perfect but everyone has a shot!
