As a first-generation college student from a low-income background, receiving scholarships meant more to me than just financial support – it meant that someone believed in me and my potential.  Thank you to the donors who made my journey possible, their support changed my life.

Scholarship support has given me the encouragement to continue to do my best through my work.  I have been able to purchase and utilize materials and digital programs to enhance my creativity and the quality of my work.  I am beyond grateful to have received this support.  I hope that in the future there will be a way for me to give back or pay forward the kindness.
