Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges, but it has also helped me realize the value of a college education.

I will begin my undergraduate career as a freshman at the University of California at Irvine, and because of your generosity, I can already report that my academics are off to a great start. My plans at this stage are to complete a major in Business Administration, and my ultimate plan is to obtain a Juris Doctorate with a concentration in Business. UC Irvine offers one of the finest business programs in the country, and I consider myself fortunate to be able to attend.

Working as a volunteer in my community throughout my high school career, I enjoyed helping people learn about community services that are available to them. I hope to be able to serve as a lawyer sometime in the future where I can make positive contributions to my community. My educational pursuits would not be possible without the generous support from scholarship sponsors in your organization. Thank you for this opportunity!
