2015 Recipient

Leonard Brain

Mr. Ding-A-Ling Ice Cream 

 

My name is Leonard Brain and I was born in Lima, Peru. Many years ago, looking for new opportunities in my life, I decided to move in to the United States. I definitely do not regret my decision.   I have found in this beautiful country a wonderful life:  I met my wife and we have the reason of our lives, our baby boy Nicholas. In this country, I have also found many opportunities to work and to be a professional. I have the opportunity to work in the Ice Cream Truck business, and the chance to pursue a career in the Nanotechnology engineer industry. 

I am currently a sophomore in the Nanoscale Materials Science Program at SCCC. After graduation, I want to transfer to the Nanoscale Engineering Program at CNSE.  I am really grateful for being selected as the recipient of your scholarship award. Thanks to you, I am one more step closer to achieving my goal of becoming an engineer in Nanotechnology.
