I am a humble yet proud recipient of the 2015 Freeman Fellowship award, which has granted me $6,000 to live/work/study abroad in Southeast Asia.
This scholarship allowed me to work with the Save Elephant Foundation in Chiang Mai, Thailand and Siem Reap, Cambodia to help with administrative and organizational duties, facilitate tourism, promote the organization through video production and marketing materials, increase fundraising efforts, and coordinate volunteerism.
“The Freeman Foundation’s major objectives include strengthening the bonds of friendship between the United States and countries of East and Southeast Asia. Through education and educational exchanges, the Foundation hopes to develop a greater appreciation of Asian cultures, histories and economies in the United States and a better understanding of the American people and of American institutions and purposes by the peoples of Asia.”
Student Sustainability Fund Grant
I co-founded a food justice group on the University of Oregon campus, titled Just Food, and we applied for a grant from the Office of Sustainability titled, “The Student Sustainability Fund” that distributes $35,000 annually. We applied for, and were granted, $2,570 to further the progress of our mission and strengthen our group.
Public Service Awards
In 2012, I received the President’s Volunteer Service Award and the Corps Member of the Round Award due to my dedication to service – more than 1,800 hours for the year.
I have also created an award-winning video for Woodlake Elementary School in a Twin Rivers Unified School District video contest. This allowed many of the low-income and homeless students to attend a roller skating party for free, paid for entirely by the school district including transportation.
I have won several writing contests, such as this essay contest in response to digital literacy.
