What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
The scholarships I have been rewarded have allowed me to focus on wonderful opportunities this year, such as working in the Gemstone suite as a student assistant, working as a teacher's assistant for first year gemstone courses, singing in the University Chorale, serving as service chair of Beta Psi, and serving as National Coordinator of the non governmental organization AYUDH Americas (ayudh.org). I have had many wonderful experiences due to these organizations, particularly the two UN conferences I partook in this year as an AYUDH representative: ECOSOC Youth Forum & CSW60 Youth Forum. Not having had to stress about my financial situation, I was able to pursue these passions of mine freely. I also had more time to explore my academic side. I am taking a philosophy course on drama, a physical chemistry lab, a biochemistry class, and a professional writing seminar. More than ever, I have been able to dive into these classes. Whether it be learning how to conduct research in my physical chemistry laboratory, or asking important questions in philosophy, I have picked up skills that will undoubtedly serve me for the rest of my life.
