As a first-generation immigrant student, I have faced many unexpected obstacles. I had to navigate a new world, adapt to a new culture and learn a foreign language. It has been challenging to manage academics with extracurriculars, yet my curiosity overshadowed my tiredness. After enrolling at UCF, I have decided to continue my work with the homeless population while pursuing other endeavors. 
After years of community service on and off-campus, I was happy to have received the recognition while giving the well-deserved credit to the other student leaders and volunteers. The financial support and awards received only encouraged me to improve my current and future work while allowing me to achieve academic excellence.
