I would like to thank you for the scholarship I was awarded.  The funds will enable me to further my studies in the Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Managment.

My first encounter with the Hospitality industry was when I worked with the South Beach Wine and Food Festival last year.  I worked as a photographer at the festival and since then, I have been hooked.  Working with Bill Farrell Agency, who was covering the event, exposed me to a whole new world of opportunities in food and event photography.  I also met the Dean of the Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management who encourages me to takes pictures at some of the Chaplin School's events.

So here I am, one year later, pursuing a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management.  Moving forward I hope to incorporate my background in photography into my hospitality career.  I can't thank you enough for supporting me, when I make it to the top, I will have you to thank.
