How 21st Century Has Helped You Succeed: "The IU 21st Century Scholars Program has helped me succeed academically by providing many enrichment learning opportunities that have helped me grow as a learner and as a global citizen. The office provides several mentors, tutors, and advisors that are all extremely helpful and available to talk to at any time. During the past two years, I have taken advantage of several unique opportunities found on the weekly e-newsletters such as, conferences, workshops, and special IU 21st Century Scholars events. These are usually uplifting and inspiring to me, as they remind me of my end goal – obtaining a college degree at Indiana University Bloomington. The IU 21st Century Scholars Program is the number one reason why I am at IU today and I would like to thank them for investing in my education."
Future Goals: "To attend Butler University for graduate school, and then become a Physician Assistant for a large health organization."
