I am so grateful to receive this scholarship. It is helping me reach my dream of becoming a chemical engineer. My program has heavy class loads, and although I enjoy learning about chemistry, math and engineering, the reading can feel overwhelming at times with trying to balance classes and work. This scholarship helps take off some of the monetary burden and gives me the chance to obtain technology that will help with understanding my readings better. This scholarship is so much more than just a monetary contribution to my education. It has helped me to realize that there are others who face similar challenges and provides a network of individuals that have navigated college with reading disabilities. I now know I am not the only one struggling and that there are those that believe in me. This helps me to keep going to achieve my dreams.
