Major - Biology
Hometown - Reno, NV

“Though I did well at UNR (University of Nevada in Reno), I didn't feel as though I was getting the best education or college experience. I am already thriving at Western with a variety of extra-curricular activities and a full-time course load, and I feel that transferring here was one of the best decisions I've ever made.”

I am currently a junior majoring in biology at Western. I hope to graduate early, Summer Quarter 2016, and go on to attend pharmacy school. I am very grateful to the Alumni Association to have received this scholarship.

This scholarship will reduce stress in my life, as I won't have to work as many hours and can instead focus on my demanding science classes.

I am so happy to be attending Western. I absolutely love Bellingham and am grateful to have the opportunity to be studying here.

I love to be outdoors. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, backpacking – anything in nature makes me happy!
