International Business: Business operations always entertained me while working with different companies while growing up. In addition to, language and culture differences fascinated me, so I decided to merge the two interests.

3. Tell us how the Foundation has made a difference in your life.
The Hendrick Scholarship Foundation has made a significant difference in my life simply because it allowed for the financing of my college degree so that I have the ability to attend school.

The foundation allowed me to better my life and gave me the ability to pursue my dream of attaining an MBA.
