I am honored to be the inaugural recipient of the Bulldog Pride Funds’ ASI President scholarship. It is great and humbling knowing that many people see the important role and time commitment that is required of the ASI President and have taken an active role in helping such a significant position. It is because of everyone generosity that I have been able to combat financial hardships. With this scholarship, I was able to cover the expense of a new laptop; a necessity for college students. When my laptop finally broke, I was left jumping from rental laptop to rental laptop just to be able to do my required class work. With this scholarship, I was able to purchase a new laptop which will last me long after I graduate in May. I cannot thank the Alumni Association, the Bulldog Pride Fund, donors, and ASI enough for their generosity and support.
