What the Empowering Greatness Scholarship Means to Abdallah


Scholarships are tokens of symbolism, aromas of a milestone in one’s journey to ‘success’, a nod to a chosen trajectory, and the facilitator for almost all opportunity. I have lived my eighteen years on this Earth with a somewhat strict moral ethic- one that requires of me diligence to improve and respect for the institutions of my life that make it matter. This scholarship will be an attestation to that work and moral ethic, and an icon of hope of maintaining excellence at all cost.
