WDO Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Recipient Follow-Up

Alexandra Bellerive – 2014 Recipient

1) How did this scholarship help you?
This scholarship helped me to pay off all of my books for my first year! I did not realize that books could cost so much, and I am extremely grateful.

2) What college/university are you attending and what is your major?
I am attending Worcester State University and majoring in Occupational Therapy. I am in the accelerated program.

3) What would you like to do when you graduate?
As part of the accelerated program, I will be continuing on at Worcester State to earn my Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy. I’m hoping to specialize in either Geriatrics or Physical Disabilities after completing my education.

4) Is there anything else you would like to share?
I would just like to thank the WDO Chamber of Commerce again for all of their help. I didn’t have to take even a penny out of my savings for books my freshman year. I feel absolutely blessed.
