How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:  To be a person of positive, leading and trusting character who looks for ways to give back to the community.

What do you like most about being in college?   The independence to make your own decisions and really seewhat life is for. You get to see what really matters in life and where you will always have a home.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?   Finding a set time to do all the things that I want to do.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   Be true to yourself. Represent who you really are inside. Be that person who you are when no one is around. Smile and remember to enjoy life. Give what you can and be honest.
