“Being a cancer survivor has really affected me in many profound ways. I have learned to focus on what’s important in life – helping others – as well as living life to the fullest every day.

This award will reduce my stress throughout university, so I can focus on my learning instead of school debt. I am very excited to make my own way in the world and continuing to make it a better place throughout my life.”
