What inspired you to choose this career path?

The feedback of extended family and friends who also majored in accounting and finance or were familiar with those fields definitely helped. Now being in the business school here at UD reassures me every day that I have made the right decision.

How has receiving the Micklin Family Scholarship made a difference in your UD career?

Receiving the Micklin Family Scholarship made a difference in my UD career because it proved that hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. It gave me motivation to keep going and push myself even further.

Why is receiving scholarship assistance important to you?

Receiving scholarship assistance is important to me because even though I am extremely lucky to have my mom financially help me through college, I know how hard she has to work to pay for just one semester. So every little bit definitely helps.

Iryna’s message to the Micklins:

Thank you so much for your support. It is truly an honor to be the recipient of this scholarship.

-Sincerely, Iryna
