As the first in my family to attend college, I have a huge responsibility to prove myself. I'm learning how to do that at SVSU.

It wasn't easy for me to make friends in high school, so when I came to SVSU I knew I had to step outside of my comfort zone and become more involved. I've had so many opportuities to do that here. I'm a member of the student organization Forever Red, which works to enhance the student experience at SVSU, and I work on campus in the Student Life Center. These experiences are helping me become more confident and social, and I'm learning how to manage my time.

The scholarship support offered by SVSU has made college affordable and created so many opportunities for me. If I hadn't received the scholarships I did, I wouldn't be attending SVSU right now. 

Thank you for helping make my college aspirations come true.
