At every fundraiser, service project and leadership event I could rely on a fantastic turnout, due to the regular backing of my community. Without which, I would be definitely not be the well-rounded person that I have grown to be. Since I was fortunate to have these opportunities when I needed them the most, I have made it my life goal to enrich the rural community that has devoted to my success. I plan on attending undergraduate school and to double major in political science and global studies. ” said Brayden in his scholarship application.
