“I can’t begin to express my gratitude to IMAC for the academic scholarship they have awarded me. I know that that sounds incredibly cliché but without the generous support of the company and its sponsors my educational pursuits would not have been possible. Coming from a less privileged background I have seen many challenges in achieving my life-long dream of becoming a teacher, however these challenges have helped to make me who I am today, and have also helped me realize the true value of an education. 

It has definitely been an emotional journey for me as I am sure it is for anyone trying to get into a university. The IMAC interview board made me feel like I had been welcomed into a family; and that
was one of the most amazing feelings I have felt in my entire life. If I could describe what the scholarship has meant to me it would be that it was almost like Christmas and I think the day I was offered the scholarship was in fact even better than any Christmas day.

To the board and the sponsors, it means so much to me to know that you believe in my ability to reach higher educational goals. The scholarship is not only helping me in my goal of becoming a teacher but it is also enabling me against all odds to break the cycle; the cycle of the young girl from a broken home who was told she couldn't. But I can and I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that I already am and will continue to make the best of the opportunity you have afforded me. Additionally, I cannot wait to be the teacher who can touch the lives of my students and then I can help my little ones achieve their dreams just as you have helped me achieve mine.”
