My experience at Hartwick College would not have been possible without the scholarships that I received. If I had the opportunity to thank the people who donated to those scholarships, I’d take them to my cabin at Pine Lake, make them a cup of Malian tea, show them my pictures, and just try to communicate what the past four years have meant to me because it’s been incredible and I am so happy I was able to be here.
