Being a Corvias Scholar and a part of the Corvias family has been one of the greatest honors. To me being a scholar, a recipient of the Corvias Foundation 4-year scholarship, means having the opportunity to push myself to do my absolute best at all times. I am surrounded by some of the most amazing, hardworking, and genuine people. This opportunity has truly inspired me to continue being the best version of myself and knowing that someone believed in my education and my future helped build a confidence that has truly impacted my college experience in the most positive way. The opportunity to go to my dream school— North Carolina State University—and not having to worry about the costs of college is one of the biggest reliefs but more importantly it allows me the time to be academically successful and be extremely active in my campus community.
The Corvias Foundation has impacted my life in unimaginable ways. By having the opportunity to meet the whole Corvias team and the other scholars I felt so blessed and inspired. Getting onto campus my first year was not nearly as difficult as I had imagined because I had been given the tools to succeed through the Corvias Foundation programs. I was able to set a strong foundation for myself and as I entered my second year I knew how to function effectively and was determined to make that year even better! Being a Corvias Scholar is something I am so fortunate to experience.
