I am thrilled and grateful to be a recipient of the 2023 Affinity Foundation Scholarship! Throughout my high school career, it has been an honor to be a leader within my school's music department as well as a member of my local EMS agency. With the help of this generous award, I can continue to pursue these passions at the University of Connecticut, where I will pursue a degree in Nursing.
