Hi Vietnamese Business Resources Association Faculty and Staff,

Thank you for the scholarship that you have given me! I really appreciate it because not only will it help me to further my education, it has helped my family and I to lessen our worries and doubts of putting me through school. As for this fall, I will be majoring in business administration and going for my bachelor’s degree at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona.
