This scholarship means more than the ‘dedication, efforts, or the hardships’, it means an honor to me. When I crossed paths with the Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation, it was an actual miracle. All my life I have been an enthusiast, mastering many talents and uncovering life’s secrets to help others and innovate. However, some things in school created barriers. As children we are taught to ‘get with the program,’ but then how do we train and create innovators (who are not entirely ‘with the program’)? It means an honor for conscientiousness and my gratitude goes to the Morelli Foundation for supporting me all these years. They have supported me with great power and I am proud to say I am achieving my dreams as a Mechanical Engineer. The purpose for me now is to give back and make them proud of their contribution to society.
