“I come from a humble background, and without this scholarship, pursuing my dream of obtaining a college education would have been very difficult. I want to assure you I am committed to making the most of this opportunity and excelling in my studies, and firmly believe a degree in finance will open many doors to help me contribute positively to society. I was born and raised in Bangladesh, and we moved to the U.S. for a better life in 2016. Education is everything and I am very proud to be the first in my family to graduate with a college degree. I am honored and humbled by your belief in me. I look forward to paying it forward someday, and making a positive impact on someone’s life, just as you have on mine.”
