Major: Theater Performance

From the moment I started looking at colleges, Chapman University rested at the top of my list, but I felt daunted by the price tag of Chapman’s amazing education. Thanks to generous merit and talent scholarships from Chapman, I am now one year in to my journey to a Chapman degree. Scholarships from Chapman have allowed me to make the most of my time here, as I do not have to worry about putting an unfair financial burden on my family. I am eternally grateful to those who give to Chapman scholarship funds because they have changed my life and inspired me to advocate for this university. In addition to gathering support for the Chapman Fund, I have been chosen as a Chapman Ambassador to represent this institution. Through my work as a student, actor and advocate, I hope to exponentially return the investment Chapman University has made in me.
