What does this scholarship mean to me? When I found out that I received the Patricia and Harry L. Bruce Endowed Scholarship I was thrilled – I can not emphasize how grateful I am of the Bruce family for giving me this opportunity and the generosity that they continue to give to UCLA. With tuition as well as housing prices increasing, this is incredibly helpful as I wrap up my last few quarters here at UCLA. I plan to not only utilize this scholarship to assist with educational expenses, but take this as an affirmation of my journey and make the most that I can out of my remaining UCLA courses. Once again, thank you so much for your kindness and aid over these years.
