Catherine

Scholarship enables Catherine to spend more time on studies

ASU sophomore Catherine always had a passion for helping others in her community and paying it forward. After learning about the community service requirement and financial assistance provided to SDFA scholars, she immediately applied. Catherine has since been able to be more involved in the community and meet people who positively influence her life.

“Without this organization, I wouldn’t be attending college right now. The SDFA played a major role in my education, and I am forever thankful.”Catherine

“My favorite memory as an SDFA scholar was volunteering for Sparky’s Welcome Team,” says Catherine. “It was my first volunteering opportunity for the SDFA. It introduced me to the opportunities of an SDFA scholar, allowed me to interact with my community for the first time and made me excited for the following year.”

In addition to volunteering and studying to be a mechanical engineer, Catherine is often asked to speak on behalf of the SDFA. These events have had a major impact on her life because she is able to meet people she admires and feels comfortable asking for advice. With the SDFA’s opportunities, her support system continues to grow.

“The SDFA is an amazing organization that helps students in need,” says Catherine. “Without this organization, I wouldn’t be attending college right now. The SDFA played a major role in my education, and I am forever thankful.”

Catherine’s scholarship has enabled her to spend more time on her studies and community service. She says that once she graduates she plans to donate back to the SDFA so other students can pursue their dreams. She is thankful to the SDFA for allowing her to pursue her own dreams and attend college.
