2013-2014 University Scholarship Winner
"I am a recipient of the Daniel Feder University Scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year, and am both thrilled and extremely grateful to be presented with such an honor....I do not need to worry about paying for classes and expensive books. I can pursue my educational goals with a focus on academics instead of finances."
"In 2012, I returned to school for the first time in twelve years to obtain a Master of Social Work from San Francisco State University. This degree will allow me to pursue my passion for providing culturally competent mental health services to communities of color and older adults in the San Francisco Bay Area...."
"Graduate school has been one of the most challenging experiences of my life, but also the most rewarding and exciting. During my first year, I achieved academic success with a 3.9 grade point average and met an extraordinary community of individuals who share my desire for social justice. During my second year, I will have the privilege of serving as Treasurer and Co-President of the Master of Social Work Council at my school while continuing to move closer toward my goals of graduating with honors and forming my own mental wellness agency in San Francisco."
