Thankful for your generosity…

…I am thankful to one of the recipients of the Curvelo-UPAAW Scholarship.  Thank you for your generosity.  Without scholarship patrons willing to support education, students like me would be unable to pursue a college degree.

Your scholarship will help me complete my Fine Arts degree, which requires a lot of art materials and some fieldwork.  My passion in making art comes from my love for art expression that is why my decision to specialize in Visual Arts come from the heart.

Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges, but has also helped me realize the value of college education.  I witnessed the struggle of my parents just to continue my education.  The scholarship truly inspires me to succeed in life.  Therefore, I am determined to complete my college degree so that I can find a decent job that is sufficient to support my family.

The Curvelo-UPAAW scholarship has helped me a lot financially.  Again, thank you for this opportunity!
