Bio

I am a curious and adventurous individual who finds joy in exploring new things. I also have a keen interest in different cultures and languages and am always eager to expand my knowledge in these areas. As a first-generation and independent student, I have learned the value of hard work and determination. Despite my intense work-study schedule, I do my best to stay actively engaged in community service. Currently, I am completing my Bachelor's degree in Nursing. Receiving scholarships would be immensely beneficial in helping me pursue my academic and career goals. By easing the financial burden of my education, scholarships would provide me with more time and resources to dedicate to learning and community service. I am extremely grateful to bold.org for providing this incredible opportunity.
