ThanksUSA presented Air Force dependent Hope Mae Abarintos with the $3,000 Trollbeads/ThanksUSA scholarship to continue a Pre-Pharmacy/Kinesiology major at the University of Houston in Texas.
Currently in her junior year, Hope Mae has begun the exciting process of applying to Pharmacy school, scoring in the top two percent on her Pharmacy College Admittance Test.
She maintains an impressive GPA and serves as a Chemistry tutor for fellow students. Hope Mae also enjoys volunteering with her church and in a local hospital nursery.
After earning her Pharmacy Degree, Hope Mae plans to give back to military personnel. She explains, “As my final professional goal, I wish become a pharmacist of the VA health system in order to do my part in giving back to the veterans of this country. A lot is offered to these men and women, but given their daily sacrifices, there’s always more to be done and I only wish to do my part.”
“I would like to thank Trollbreads for being a sponsor for not only ThanksUSA, but for me personally. The Trollbeads/ThanksUSA scholarship has done so much in helping me get through this year. It allows me to really focus on the goals I have set for myself. The difference you make to students like myself is enormous and I could never put into words how thankful I really am.”
