"I am thrilled and thankful to receive the Fuel Your Dreams Scholarship Award. My first job working in wine was as a junior publicist at a public relations agency specializing in wine and travel. While I transitioned out of PR as a career, I continued seeking opportunities to expand my knowledge of wine. This scholarship continues that path of learning, in hopes of creating programming centered around WOC working in wine."
