Having to pay for college completely by myself hasn't been the easiest so far, I've been working 40 hours a week during the summer and around 20 hours during the school year since freshmen year, sometimes even working two jobs. Receiving this money helps me so much, so thank you a thousand times for such a generous scholarship.
