"As I complete courses in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program, my passion for this field continues to grow. One day I hope to become a Speech Language Pathologist and specialize in caring for children with cleft lips and palates. I feel fortunate that my area of interest will allow me to serve my community and help children communicate easier. Thanks to scholarship support, the journey toward my goal is less stressful."
