Does your WTRAA scholarship donation make a difference? Let’s hear what some of our recipients have to say…
I graduated college last August 2017 from UCF with a degree in Finance and a minor in Political Science. I started a full time job at Harris Corporation in Melbourne, FL in September 2017 as a Financial Planning Analyst. My current plans are to continue my job with Harris and start applying to get my MBA at the first of next year! The WTRAA scholarship was so vital to my undergraduate career as it allowed me to focus on my studies as well as extracurriculars without worrying about how I will pay for everything. During my senior years I was able to take the time to attend the career events UCF put on and it landed me an interview and later job opportunity with Harris! I was able to graduate college with no debt and have been able to put aside money to attend graduate school in the near future, I am so thankful for the women of WTRAA believing in me and helping me get to the point I am now!
