I am extremely honored and blessed to have received this scholarship from the Morelli Foundation as I complete my final year of my double engineering degree at the University of Utah. I believe dyslexia has helped me develop strong characteristics to work hard and to never stop pursuing my dreams. Balancing a school, work, and personal life started out as a challenge my early years in college but now has allowed me to develop a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle. I am becoming an engineer for two main reasons; to make an impact on the world and to have the ability to be involved with fun hands-on work. The Morelli Foundation has provided me with so much and I will forever be grateful. Receiving this scholarship means so much to me and greatly helps relieve the financial burden for attending school. I am very excited for the future and cannot wait to enter the world as a civil or construction engineer and one day give back to this wonderful community.
