It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am for the opportunities and experiences that USC has provided me. USC has been my dream school since I first stepped on the campus as a middle school student. I cannot thank the USC Associates enough for allowing me to follow this dream. I know that USC has prepared me well for a successful career, and I know that I will always have a strong support system in the Trojan family.
