I am very honored and appreciative to be one of the recipients of the 2015 HAEA Scholarship. I have been accepted to the University of Illinois at Chicago as a biological sciences/pre-med major and will begin my studies in August 2015. Attending college to pursue a career in the medical field has beena long time goal of mine. And since my HAE diagnosis, my passion has grown even stronger. I look forward to assisting others in their fi ght against this and other medical conditions and to pay it forward, with great gratitude, to those who continue to fight for me.
By awarding me this scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, which will allow me to focus more on the importance of course work and research. Your generosity and continued support for our HAE family inspires me. I know with the support of my immediate and HAE family that the sky is the limit. Again, thank you for expressing your confidence in me by awarding me this scholarship. I am truly grateful.

The HAE Scholarship will be extremely helpful in allowing me to attend the University of Connecticut in the fall. This scholarship program is a great chance for students with HAE to receive fi nancial aid when attending the school of their choice.Maureen Pflomm, University of Connecticut
I am thrilled to receive this scholarship to help my family with my college expenses. Through all of this I have loved school and found helping others helped me. I look forward to continuing serving and learning in higher education.Sydney Peel, Texas Christian University
I want to someday make an impact on a child's life by teaching them skills that will guide them through life. This award is giving me the confi dence and inspiration I need to achieve both my academic and personal goals.Bridget Glaza, Aquinas College
The HAE Scholarship that I was awarded will help me buy the books that I need for my classes. I'm taking classes for my major that are very new, and therefore have new textbooks that will be expensive. Without this scholarship, I wouldn't be able to do what I wanted with my college career.Noah Harrington, Alma College
