“It is an extraordinary honor to be chosen as a recipient of Delta Phi Alpha’s 2015 German Study Abroad Scholarship. Most importantly, I would like to thank the DPA Board of Directors for their assuredly thoughtful selection, as well as my German professors at the University of Hawaii for their letters of recommendation and encouragement in my pursuit of German Studies. I am elated and full of gratitude to have the support of the Delta Phi Alpha Society during my time of study in Germany, which will undoubtedly be the most rewarding of my life thus far.”
