Nick is working to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a National Geographic landscape photographer.
Nick has a pre-nursing degree and planned to move forward with a nursing degree, but his last semester, he took a photography class and fell in love with it. “I enjoy taking candids of people.”
Going to college was something that he always wanted to do, but now that he’s in, “I keep wanting to learn more.”
Today, Nick is working towards receiving his Photo AS degree, along with his Graphic Design AS degree. As a Visual Arts student, every assignment presents him with a new goal that is often expensive.
Without the help of scholarships, “We wouldn’t be able to produce what we need to produce. To have a great product, it takes a lot of effort, supplies, and time.”
Nick wants the owners to know “how much we really appreciate their gifts. Due to your generosity, I am now allowed more time to focus on my schoolwork…I am deeply grateful. I plan to continue working hard, putting your scholarship to its fullest use this semester.
“What you have allowed me is much more than just a check—it is a guarantee that my tuition and supplies will be covered.” This helps Nick focus all his energies into creating pieces of art that “will be a representation of your generosity.”
