In addition to her schooling, she works part-time at a vet clinic. While she admits her course and work load can be stressful, she thrives on challenging herself. "Chaos and entropy can't faze me for long, and stress can't paralyze me; it's the catalyst I need to make the most of my education. But another, more essential catalyst for my studies is money, since there is no education – no opportunity – without it. I am immensely grateful to the IDA Scholarship Foundation for granting me a scholarship, an opportunity, and an education. The generosity shown by this organization has empowered me - for three years now - to challenge myself, cross classes off the list, and accomplish more than I ever thought I would. While I might always be stressed, it is due to the kindness of the IDA Scholarship Foundation that I am far less stressed about money." Haley Cadran Sponsor: PDQ Door Co.
