“Thank you so much for your generous gift to my education. Your donation to my scholarship is invaluable in helping me reach my goal of becoming a physician. Thank you for your support of alleviating the financial burden of medical students. Your generosity is part of what making UCF an even greater medical school”. – Emma H. M.D. Student Class of 2022

 

“I am extremely honored to receive this scholarship and I can’t express the amount of support such scholarships provide me and my family. I immigrated to the U.S. with my family in hopes of a better future. There are constant financial alarms for my family, and with my parents working around minimum wages, settling in a new country is certainly not easy. However, scholarships like these are our harness and much-needed hope. I am just so grateful for people who come out as angels to help students like me. As I moved to the U.S., I worked to my highest potential, and now in the path of becoming the first M.D. in the family. This is all because of all support I have been able to receive from people like you. From becoming my High School Valedictorian to receiving the highest/most significant award at UCF, The Order of Pegasus, I owe my accomplishments to my family, friends, mentors, and my community. My future goals are not just to become the best doctor I can be, but also to keep in mind and heard, the need to give back. Finally, I just wanted to say my final, most sincere, thank YOU. I will never forget your generosity, and I hope to, one day, pass it on”. – M.D. Student, Class of 2022

 

“I am just beginning my medical school journey and would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and kindness in providing me with financial support. I come from a low-income home and thanks to your financial support my stress has been greatly relieved. I can now focus more on my studies instead of worrying about finances. You are playing an essential role in my current success as a medical student and in my future success as a physician. I am currently living my dream of attending medical school, something that I have thought about for years. I am excited about all the opportunities I have available right now and all the amazing things that will come in the near future. As of now, I am interested in a career in internal medicine and pediatrics, but I am keeping my mind open as I continue to explore specialties during my time in medical school. I am excited to be in medical school and with your help my time here will be less stressful. My family and I are eternally grateful for your generosity and we wish you the best in your future endeavors. Once again thank you for all your support”. – M.D. Student, Class of 2022
