The personal injury lawyers at Amy G Law Firm believe that everyone deserves an equal chance when it comes to overcoming adversity and creating a better life for themselves, their loved ones, and their community.
Acting on that belief, the Amy G Law Firm has proudly created the Access to Education Scholarship to award $1,000 to the applicant who offers the most innovative and insightful idea for improving accessibility to higher education and clearly articulates the importance of doing so.
We’re excited to announce the winner of the 2018 Amy G Law Firm Access to Education Scholarship is Ethan Higa! Congrats Ethan! Learn more about Ethan below.
“My name is Ethan Higa and I am attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Born and raised in the diverse state of Hawaii, I have a passion for understanding and experiencing culture. My experiences working with refugees during an internship in Atlanta revealed a need for advocates of the voiceless. As a Christian, seeing first-hand the dignity restored to those who had endured such hardship humbled me and energized my passion to serve.
I plan on making a difference by safeguarding every American’s right to live a fulfilling and thriving life. With my experience in crossing differing cultures and my desire to help those who hurt, I hope that my skills and passion will change lives.”
Upon hearing the news of winning the scholarship, Ethan said “I am extremely excited to have been chosen for your scholarship. With the high cost of law school, creating an affordable opportunity to pursue a law degree significantly helps me in preparing myself to serve other people. I am so thankful that your company supports students like myself in pursuing our dreams!”
