I feel extremely fortunate to receive the 2018 IOPFDA Scholarship! In the fall of 2018, I will pursue my Undergraduate degree in Marketing at Virginia Tech as a Freshman in the Pamplin School of Business. I am excited to further my studies in a topic that I am truly passionate about. I was lucky to have a Marketing/Public Relations internship through the Intern Mentor program at my school, which allowed my knowledge of the topic to grow. I am thankful for my parents who have pushed me to be a well rounded student participating in extracurricular activities such as Dance Company, Poms Team, SGA, and other leadership organizations, while having a year round job. Without my parents, I would not be taking this important step in my life in the Fall. I feel so lucky to have the support from my family, and this scholarship, as I begin my college education.
