How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:   Being a Daniels Scholar is not only the highest honor I've ever been awarded but also the biggest blessing. It has made my further education possible and has given me support to have the financial freedom to be involved at my university and not spend all my time outside of class at work.

What do you like most about being in college?   The feeling of independence and excitement of learning the field that you're interested in investing your life to.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?   The greatest challenge so far is learning time management. There is just so much to do and available in college, which is great, once you have your time managed right.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   Work your hardest on showing the real you through the application. Don't be afraid to let your guard down and let Daniels Fund meet the real you through your application even before they meet you in person.
