In response to winning the scholarship:

I want to thank each of you so very much for this great honor! I am both privileged and honored to be the recipient of such a prestigious award that will allow me to pursue an incredible endeavor this summer! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to travel to Saipan to work with scientists on a coral reef ecology project and present my findings at a NOAA symposium in DC at the end of the summer! I know this will prove beneficial as I prepare for graduate school and my future steps in pursing a career in fisheries and wildlife science. I have officially accepted this scholarship and am in the final stages of my project plan for the summer. Thank you for continuing to support me in my studies and learning experiences and encouraging me to pursue my passions. I look forward to sharing my project with you and keeping in touch in the future!
