"I am honored to be the recipient of the 2023 Vince DeFinis Scholarship. I will use this scholarship to complete my education and better participate in the countless opportunities NACE has to offer. I am deeply motivated and inspired by not only the NACE Houston professional and student chapter but also by NACE National and the Foundation of NACE. One last word, I am forever grateful for NACE, the scholarship, the journey as the Secretary of the NACE UH Chapter, and especially all connections that NACE brought to me. Every individual person who has stepped into my life means a lot to me in my journey to be a young hospitality professional."
