I am honored to receive the 2017 AAAE Foundation scholarship award from the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE). It demonstrates that my skills, knowledge, and experiences are recognized by the Board Members. Moreover, it motivates me to continue reaching toward my aviation career goals and to push beyond my limitations. It is an amazing feeling to be part of a renowned organization where it has the potential to help students find their career passion in the aviation field. If not for AAAE and the aviation program at Cal State LA, I would not be where I am now. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to outshine myself in the aviation industry.
