Thank you so much for presenting me with this very generous scholarship award. It is an honor to be recognized by the Foundation for my dancing. I was so surprised, grateful and thrilled when I heard that I had been chosen! Receiving a scholarship award from the Angel Shine Foundation will not only help me continue to pursue my love of dance, but it will inspire me to reach for even higher goals. Thank you Angel Shine Foundation for reminding me that hard work will take you far in dance and in life.
