What does this scholarship mean to me? I am grateful and honored to be selected as a recipient of the Harold R. Mortenson Scholarship. This award is particularly meaningful to me because it will help reduce the financial burden of my college tuition and living expenses on my parents, who have always been incredible supporters of my personal goals. In the future, I hope to one day be in a position to give back to the UCLA community and do for other students what this scholarship will help do for me.
