"In my short presence in the actuarial community, I have already noticed the support that is given to rising actuaries. It is inspirational that The Research Committee of The Actuarial Foundation has chosen to support and endorse my future studies with this prestigious award. I look forward to spending many future years in the community of actuaries."
