"Philanthropy truly changed the trajectory of my life. I'm a proud first-generation college student, and without receiving scholarships, I would not be where I am today. I’m an advocate for higher education and believe wholeheartedly in the impact it has on students' lives and society. I'm passionate about my career at the Foundation because I get to see firsthand how philanthropy impacts our university."
