Lin Z.
Pinole, CA

"Life. What is life? That's a deep question that I've chosen to dedicate the rest of my educational career to through a scientific standpoint. The complex way each cell interacts with another at the molecular level continues to amaze me every day. In college, I plan to major in Biology and pursue medical school later on. I also love running track. The satisfaction of crossing the finish line first motivates me to work harder and harder to obtain my goals. Whether I'm struggling through a late study session or out sprinting a 400, I'll always remind myself, "a lifetime of glory is worth a moment of pain" (Unbroken, Laura Hillenbrand).

I would also like to express my gratitude of Scholarships.com as this foundation supports me through my educational journey. There are a plethora of scholarship opportunities on this website. As long as one puts in effort, one day, the results will be fruitful."
