Congratulations to Betelhem, our Class of 2019 recipient of a First Scholars Award, who is enrolled at the College of the Holy Cross to study biology on the pre-med track:

“I want to become a pediatrician and eventually have my own practice somewhere in the world.  I also want to study cancer and work in finding a cure for different types of cancers.  Being the first in my family able to attend college is something my mom has dreamed for me since coming to the United States and something I have dreamed about since I was in grade school writing about becoming a doctor when I grew up.  To go to college is to overcome generations of hard work and finally embark on what my parents and I have dreamed of all our lives.”
