"If I can get a scholarship that I didn't even know existed, at a school I didn't think I could ever get into, anyone can do anything they set their mind to. I am just honored to have received it in the first place, and I hope it's a token of success for my lab and hopefully the Department of Biology. Most of all, I hope my mom is proud of me, wherever she is."
