To the donors who made my academic scholarship possible, I literally would not be here without you, so thank you. I don’t think I could ever thank you enough for your generosity that has allowed me to pursue my education at a university I absolutely adore through my scholarship! Not only am I having the best opportunities and experiences, I am getting equipped for my future in the best possible ways so thank you over and over again .
