Scholarship Award: Great Erie Federal Credit Union (GEFCU) & the New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA) Award

College attending: Boston University

Field of study: Biology & Languages

"One of the main reasons I want to go to college is getting an education that will best help me create a better, brighter world around me. My love of biology meant I already wanted to study medicine, but this past year has only strengthened my belief that the healthcare field is one of the most powerful and fundamental to our country. Despite the difficulties this year has posed, I have hope for the future and am convinced both my community and I am capable of overcoming anything on the horizon."
