A Daniels Fund Impact Story

College Attended:
University of Denver
Scholarship Year:
How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:   It means so much to be a Daniels scholar, so much that if it wasn't for the Daniels scholarship I would not be in school right now because I would not be able to afford it. I am so happy that I can further educate myself to succeed in life and help others as well with a success in their lives. 

What do you like most about being in college?    I love the fact that it is so laid back. Students that attend the university are there because they want to be.  It is an entirely different feeling from High School. College is so much better!

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?    The greatest challenge is staying focused on school work when there are so many other things going on in life.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?     Make sure you are ready for a one time chance in a lifetime that can transform your life forever in a good way!
