2019 Scholarship Recipient: Alan Remes
About Alan: As a young kid, my main goal was to attend college to make my parents proud of me. My parents came to this country to seek new opportunities for me and my three siblings. I want to take advantage of the all the opportunities I have to achieve this goal. It was hard choosing my major, because I want to do something that will impact others. Teaching has always been an interest in me, but I was always so ashamed of it. Teachers are the ones who make a bigger difference in a child’s life and that is one of the main reason I want to be a teacher. Attending college for me is just another step for me to meet my goal as teacher. My major is Early Childhood Education, because I love working with kids and I feel like this is where I can impact more people in my community. Thanks to the GIFT committee for helping me continue my education and expanding my horizons.
Alan will be attending the University of West Georgia, Congratulations Alan!
