How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:   To be a Daniels Scholar is a great honor, I have learned many things from being a scholar like balancing things and being able to succeed in those things even though it’s difficult.

What do you like most about being in college?    I like being able to learn and explore things on my own, I like the feeling of independence, and I like the culture of college (college games, school clubs, etc.)

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?    Trying to balance a lot of stuff at once (studying, job, grades, GRE, and grad school applications)

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   Keep up with everything (forms, etc.) and work hard. Hang in there because in the end it will be worth all the hard work.
