I feel very honored to have been selected to receive this art scholarship. I have been an artist for 8 years now. It has been very exciting seeing my own growth through my work. I will continue to work and push myself to keep improving. I hope to be accepted into the studio art program at ArtCenter after this fall. This scholarship will help me to finalize my portfolio and pay for my classes in the Spring semester. Thank you once again for this opportunity to continue my education!
