“We are beyond thrilled to announce Sofia as this year’s scholarship winner, said Britton Smith of Bonsai Finance. “Our scholarship committee was especially impressed with her ongoing search for excellence, having managed to maintain outstanding grades during her school years despite having lived in six different locations and attended nine different schools in those locations, her interest in learning from the cultures she has been taken to due to her father´s work in the Marine Corps and her ability to integrate into each new school, as evidenced by having been named a Student Ambassador in her most recent high school.”
