Being named a 2020 Truman Scholarship is less a reflection of my personal abilities but rather the incredible opportunities that Boise State and the advising office in particular offers. My fellowship advisor walked me through the process and was as invested in the process as I was, at times staying up as late as possible to help revise my essays. With this scholarship, I intend on obtaining a graduate economics and law degree in order to become a criminal justice attorney. I am passionate about reforming the current prison system in an economically rational way so that inmates that are released can join the workforce and not be at risk for returning to prison.
