“This scholarship essentially provided me with the opportunity to pursue my study abroad experience. The experiences I was able to partake in—from traveling to the Arctic Circle to seeing the Northern Lights to meeting some other UNC students also studying abroad, and every trip and amazing person I met in between—have permanently altered my outlook on life and later experiences that I would like to endeavor upon. I would like to sincerely thank the donors who gave me a doorway into this incredible opportunity.”
