FY 2018 - Spring - EDDY AGUILAR


My senior year has been going great, with having ended my first semester on the Dean’s List. This school year has involved a lot of anticipation as I applied for medical school for this upcoming year. I am proud to say that after I graduate I will be attending the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical School to pursue a life long dream of becoming a physician oriented towards helping underrepresented minorities. The scholarship I have been provided with means so much as my family struggles economically to fund for my education. It has provided me with economic stability to completely focus on finishing out my undergraduate career positively. Personally, it gives me so much pride to be acknowledged for my efforts and I hope to also encourage future latino/latina generations to strive for academic success.
