Anqi adds, “Being a student right now is hard. Not only is it taxing emotionally, but also financially. With this scholarship, I would have more time to pursue engineering in all forms, with increased involvement in my design team and afterschool activities, alleviating some of the stress that comes with being a student. Thank you very much for affording me this opportunity! Watch Anqi’s full video here .
