My scholarship, it made me feel like Mines wanted me. So when Ms. Denise came to me and gave me the scholarship, I was like okay, this, this is why I am doing this. Someone else is just like me, but they were able to get through and they did very well for themselves Coming in as a Harvey Scholar, like there would be these older people, you know, using the grant money they give you as a Harvey Scholarship, or study abroad money or, just, you know, their next step after graduating was making a difference. Paying it forward. Having that scholarship is letting me take this full semester abroad and has given me so many opportunities. Knowing that the community was backing me before I even got here was so important to my self confidence, my self-esteem. I find that group of people, and Hugh and Michelle: the donors, incredibly inspiring. It just provides an extra drive for me to do well in school, or as well as I can.
