I wanted to thank you for granting me the 2022 Bronx AIA Empowerment Award. It is truly an honor to receive this award. I know it will help me finish my academic career at SSA with more diligence, motivating me to maintain a positive work ethic in school.
Thank you thank you! I am honoured by this achievement as it is my first scholarship award thus far. I am also eagerly looking forward to life after formal academia and the challenges/rewards that it's sure to bring. Thanks again and I will see you guys in April.
