The generosity of AAAE has been invaluable in my college experience. Their support of my academic goals has radically changed what I thought was possible in my college experience. With their help, I was able to finance my first motion picture, one of the greatest experiences in my life. Further support has allowed me the financial freedom to participate in a career-building unpaid internship that I completed this summer, and with their last addition, I now have the financial support necessary to officially graduate debt free. I cannot thank them enough for their patronage and their unwavering belief in my academic goals. I can say without doubt that their scholarships have been the most impactful that I've received in my time in college.
