Without the Chancellor’s scholarship I received to UC Berkeley, I may not have been able to afford college or would have graduated with a lot more student loan debt. I’ve always treated that scholarship as a loan, an investment that others made in me, that I would pay back with interest by helping others achieve their academic dreams.
