I will be a freshman attending San Francisco State University as a Civil Engineering major. As a child, I loved exploring the city of San Francisco. I always wondered how mankind can create such a beautiful civilization, from its towering skyscrapers like the Transamerica Pyramid to the sturdy piers of Embarcadero. The city still lives in harmony. Creating beauty that is accessed everyday is why I am striving to be a civil engineer.
The idea of being the mastermind behind a creation of awe has always been a dream of mine. Being the youngest sibling, I looked up to my older sisters as they continue to follow their dreams of going to graduate school. With a retired father on a fixed income, the Russ Cain Memorial Student Aid Fund can also help my parents with school expenses.
I highly appreciate the Pacific Media Workers Guild for not only allowing me to pursue my goals, but for supporting me in my journey as well. Thank you for the scholarship!
