"My 7 years at Hawthorn gave me the foundation to succeed in a highly competitive engineering program and a challenging work environment. I learned the importance of hard work and developed resilience. Further, I discovered a deep joy in learning and came to realize that a meaningful life requires using our talents and gifts to serve others. Because of this, I am motivated to continuously grow as an individual and aim to foster this same passion in my children."
