Conquering milestones

Manisha Sharma

Manisha Sharma remembers how important her freshman year scholarship was. Her sisters were both seniors, and her mom was raising them all on her own. Manisha also remembers how widely her mom smiled at her sister's graduation, because "she lives to see us conquer milestones like that." Now, Manisha looks forward to being the one causing the smiles, as she walks at commencement this spring.
