College Attended:

Major:

Scholarship Year:
2008
How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

What it means to me to be DF scholar:  Daniels fund is such a great organization and scholarship program aimed at not only helping students through college successfully but also in helping these young adults gain a sense of gratitude and determination needed in the future.  I am so honored to be labeled as a scholar from such an organization.

What I like the most about college and also the greatest challenge:  The greatest challenge for me was learning and adapting to a new way of learning and also a new life style.  The thing I like most about college is the ability for an individual to be in direct contact with their future; it’s all up to the student to achieve whatever goals they wish.

Advice:  One very important thing I want to say is to never give up.  You have come so far and been blessed enough to become a scholar so give college your all.  The first year will be hard, no doubt, but soon enough you'll get over that mountain and understand the importance of hard work!
