Why did you apply to become an ASTEO Scholar? 

“I applied for the scholarship not only because I needed the money to go to college, but I also want to continue my education to the highest degree possible. An education is one thing that I will always strive for because I never want to stop learning.”

What are you looking forward to the most at EOU? 

“All of the opportunities EOU has to offer. Right now I’m in the choir, taking voice lessons, in the Pre-Health Club and also pole vaulting for the track and field team. Later on, I think I’ll try to start doing my own research as well, if I have the time.”
