Brittany’s message: 
Drew has and continually provides me with the emotional and motivational support that I need to continue on my educational and personal journey at Michigan State University. Before Drew, I was struggling personally and academically, but becoming a Drew Scholar made MSU feel small enough to where I started to call it home. The Charles Drew Science Scholars will continually be the best experience that I have made at Michigan State. I am forever grateful for the impact that the Charles Drew Science Scholars program has had on my life and its assistance in preparing me for the next level in my life.

Congratulations Brittany! Keep up the good work!!
