"I chose to attend Queens College because it offered diversity, as well as an extraordinary education for a modest price. I am currently majoring in Sociology and minoring in Business and Liberal Arts. I will be taking the New York State Court Officer Examination this year, and I hope to go on to take the Suffolk County Police Officer Examination. I am especially grateful for my scholarship. I would not have access to all of the amazing opportunities I have had so far without financial assistance. I was part of the Freshman Honors Program which shaped my academic foundation and college experience. I am the proud Co-President of the Step team on campus for the 2014-2015 school year. In addition, I am currently an intern at the Queens Library through the CUNY Service Corps, and I am a New York Needs You 2014 Fellow. I also work on campus through work study, and I hold a temporary position each semester through the Phonathon which gives me the opportunity to raise money for other students in need."
