How the Daniels Fund Scholarship has impacted my life:

Please describe what it means to you to be a Daniels Scholar:    Being a Daniels Scholar means to me that I have a chance to truly challenge myself at a university and to be able to reach my dream to become a filmmaker.  I also feel that it brings me into something bigger where I can do more than just be a normal student.

What do you like most about being in college?    I most like living amongst other people who I can connect with and share experiences. It's almost like having a second family.

What has been the greatest challenge so far in college?     The greatest challenge I have encountered at school has been planning my time.  Trying to plan classes, homework, taekwondo work out, and a job have been hard due to my school job schedule constantly changing.

What advice would you offer someone who is applying to become a Daniels Scholar?    My advice to those applying to be a Daniels Scholar is to be your honest self.  Doing that will bring out the best that you can do.
