"To the family of Sam Weis,
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for the opportunity you, and all the people who have donated to the scholarship in Sam’s honor, have provided [other recipient] and I with. While I have not “seized the day” to the extent of [the other recipient], and I do not believe I would be nearly as achieving and out-going as Sam, I do believe that I will do everything in my ability to get what I need done in order to advance a career that I hold very important to helping others in their own time of need. I’ve seen people go through times of unjust cruelty, some people very close to me.
There’s been moments where I’ve had a first-had experience myself. Since then, I have sworn to dedicate my life to improving those of others. To protect those who cannot protect themselves and deliver justice where it is due. I cannot lie, I truly am terrified of the future and what it will bring. But seeing people, such as Sam and all of you: kind, helpful and good; it truly motivates me to go out there and take on the world and ‘carpe the effin’ diem,’ learning from that outlook on life. Everyday’s an opportunity; it just takes the will to take it know before it passes later. Again, I truly am speechless in thanking you for everything.
With many thanks and good wishes,"
