I feel extremely blessed for the opportunity to surround myself with people who have learned to succeed even though we all have the same learning disability. After talking with others in the same boat as me, it was great to talk to other students who are dealing with the same struggles as I have since kindergarten. This award means an extreme amount to me because the Morelli Foundation was able to understand the struggles I have been going through and they understand who I am, and I know I am not alone. The award is about so much more than the money, it’s about all the support and tools that the Foundation offers, including the buddy system. It is extremely encouraging and will help to keep me motivated to achieve my goals.
