This award means so much not only to me, but my family as well. These past couple of years have been extremely rough for us considering my parents’ conditions. My freshman year of college was very hard for me especially because I knew I had to leave my parents’ side when I have been there helping them out every day. Through the situation we are in now with the pandemic, it has given me the chance to stay home and help my parents while still continuing my academic career. I am blessed to be able to do so, however, I still wish I was getting the hands on learning, as I was last year. I’m not going to lie, online learning is a struggle but I know I will prosper and overcome either way. With the help of this reward my family and I will not have to worry about whether or not I can continue my education. This is a huge weight lifted off of our shoulders. Again I cannot thank everyone enough for this award, it is truly a blessing. Thank you for your time, consideration and all that you do to help our students!
