“I wouldn’t be at the University of Michigan without donors. That is the reason I was able to come to the University of Michigan and the reason that I am still motivated and passionate about IOE. I work harder in my classes because I know that donors are putting a lot and investing a lot in me and I want to make sure that I’m doing the best I can to make the biggest impact on the University and whatever job I go out and take.”
