MICHAELA FRICHNER

“My dad, veteran Lance Corporal Jeffrey Frichner USMC, is disabled. Watching my father struggle with poor mental health and trauma from his military service inspired me to study psychology. A huge weight was lifted off my chest when I received the scholarship from the MCSF. The award has helped make it possible for me to major in Applied Psychology at NYU. On-campus I work with special education students, I have an internship working with the legally blind, and I volunteer at the local homeless shelter. I feel incredibly fortunate that I am able to study at the school of my dreams and I hope to express my gratitude by becoming a social worker. It is all the more meaningful to me that my education has been made financially possible because of the MCSF and my dad’s service.”
