My name is Victoria and I am a sophomore at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, majoring in Travel Industry Management. Before this crisis I was living in the dormitories at Mānoa and working part-time at a job on campus to support myself while attending school full-time.
While being at home has been comforting during this tragic time, as with many other families this has also been a very difficult time for my family and me financially. Since I do not have a job at the moment, I’ve been worried about how I can help my family in every way possible. Getting this award made a difference. Your gracious act of giving goes noticed by all of us who are struggling during this challenging time. Thank you to all the donors who are helping me continue focusing on my academic journey.
