“I can’t thank you enough for your generous support…. As a military child with a transient lifestyle, I feel indebted to the many communities around the world which have shaped me to be the person I am today. I believe my academic endeavors in these fields will provide me with the foundation to make a meaningful impact on my physical and social environments, so I thank you again for giving me the opportunity to continue these pursuits at university.”
