"I am overwhelmed by the blessing it is to receive the Ed Bradley Scholarship.  This made it possible for me to finish my education at Pepperdine and pursue my dream of becoming a television news reporter and journalist.  In addition, to be given an award in honor of such a phenomenal journalist who left the mark that he did on this industry is a feeling unlike any other.  Ed Bradley's hard work, passion, and dedication to this industry are something I strive to attain.  What an honor and a blessing this is.  I am so grateful and hope someday I will be able to do the same for future journalists so this industry will continue to flourish.  Our world is a better place because of journalism and because of people like Ed Bradley.  He not only impacted the world with his stories, but is continuing to impact it by providing students like me with the ability to achieve goals and leave our own legacy behind."
