Speaker: Adrian Fernandez

Please introduce yourself and share what career you are pursuing and how this scholarship award will help you.

Adrian Fernandez: Hello, My name is Adrian Fernandez. I am a student at the New York City College of Technology and I'm currently studying mechanical engineering. I'm really grateful for this scholarship. It's gonna be a lot of help. I've been put in the predicament before where my classes would be placed on hold because I wouldn't have enough money to pay my tuition in time. So there've been times where my courses have been dropped and I pretty much wouldn't be able to continue my studies until I begin a payment plan and I'm really grateful to not have to worry about that going forward.

What would you like to say to the donors who made this scholarship possible?

Adrian Fernandez: I just want to say thank you to everyone at Schneider Electric and thank you to everyone at the SkillPointe Foundation. I wouldn't be able to finish out the semester without you guys. It's been really, really tough to pay my tuition and continue to live a normal life and be able to focus on my studies without the help of any scholarships or whatnot. But I couldn't be more grateful for you guys. I really appreciate you guys. Thank you so much.
