She also is active in the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers. For the last two years, she has served as a chemistry lab teaching assistant.
Hope for the future
“I am currently in the process of applying to dental school with the hope of becoming an orthodontist, which has been my ultimate goal since I was in high school.”
Why she is grateful
“Because of my scholarship support, I am able to focus completely on my coursework rather than splitting my time and energy between my studies and a part-time job. This financial freedom has given me an opportunity to become an active member on campus and to give back to the University that I’ve come to call my home.”
