Avik Desai ’20

Your scholarship is helping me achieve my dream.

I plan to become a nurse. I hope to help patients who are suffering from infectious diseases.

My path starts at Bergen, in part because of the strength of the nursing program, but also because Bergen helps me balance the costs with my work and the challenge of earning the tuition. It is a huge challenge to raise the tuition each semester. But with your help I am on the path and on my way.

Eventually I hope to earn a bachelor’s or even a master’s degree in nursing. I want to excel in the field and to have an impact on people’s lives.

Thank you.
