TLF 2020 Undergraduate Scholarship Recipient Britney Huston
My name is Britney Huston, and I am a rising sophomore at Alfred State College, where I am pursuing a degree in Marketing. I chose this major because the marketing field is so versatile. The possibilities of who I can work with and for are endless!

I discovered TLF on scholarships.com. I wanted to apply to this scholarship because it catered to minority residents who are interested in pursuing a career that heavily involves communication skills in business. I believe in TLF's mission because it grants minorities a chance to gain experience and knowledge about the business world.

Beyond receiving this scholarship, I want to continue to build my relationship with TLF because the organization is key to opening many doors, and I want to give back to the foundation someday. I believe the work of TLF is essential for people like me because it reminds us there is a position of importance waiting for us in the world of business.

Once I obtain my degree, I want to pursue a career as a creative director and writer because I have a passion for creativity. Bringing diversity into my field of work is vital because ethnic groups already inspire and change marketing through their culture and entertainment; it's time we take on roles in the offices as well.

For starters, I would like to thank the universe for leading me to this opportunity. Secondly, I would like to thank TLF because I know the selection process can be complicated; I am thankful that I am a recipient. Thirdly, I would like to thank my family and friends for all of their love and support. Without them, I wouldn't be who I am today. Lastly, I would like to thank myself for being a go-getter and a strong, intelligent, black woman.
