“This just means that all of my sacrifices and hard work are paying off. I do my best to focus and put my studies first, not being home (my country, Nicaragua) just makes me appreciate the opportunity of being here and had the chance to go to college and learn a very kind and respected profession.”

“The scholarship will help to pay for my forestry education, which I am planning to start in Fort Kent and finish in Orono.
