Goodwill Scholarship

I plan on attending the University of South Florida and majoring in Biomedical Sciences in hopes of pursuing veterinary medicine. This scholarship means so much more to me than just the money. I always strive to spread kindness and impact those around me positively. I got the “goodwill” scholarship which proved to me that I was able to impact a room full of people I never met with my kindness. I hope to continue positively impacting those around me and my community in the future. This scholarship served as recognition for the person I always try to be.
