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 the most amazing opportunity, Without it I would never have been blessed with the opportunity to come to college in Virginia, and all of the amazing experiences that have come from my time here. I owe a great deal to the scholarship fund, I am proud and honored to be a Daniels scholar.

What do you like most about being in college?   I love the classes and the options to study what I like, rather than what is strictly required. The people I have met are from all over the world, and to learn from them and hear their experiences is great.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?   The greatest change has been my study habits, I thought I was able to study like I did in high school, and I was wrong, but with some practice my study skills have improved.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?   Being a Daniels scholar will change your life, as long as your turn in everything on time and remember to smile :)
