“I’m absolutely fortunate and thankful to have been chosen as a recipient for this year's UH Hilo Alumni and Friends Scholarship. As with applying to any scholarship, the process can be grueling while waiting for the results. I welcomed the notification of this award with much relief and the utmost, sincere gesture of gratitude."
