CONGRATULATIONS to Diane Daniel on your well-deserved achievement of being awarded the $500 Toothlife Tuition Assistance Scholarship through BrownGirl, RDH!
My name is Diane Daniel, and I am a proud recipient of the Toothlife Tuition Assistance Scholarship through BrownGirl, RDH. I attend Plaza College in Forest Hills, Queens, New York. I am in my second year and I will be graduating at the end of 2021, with an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene.
Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a Dentist. I love the science behind teeth and how the mouth works. A smile is so important, it’s the greatest form of communication and a conversation starter. I became a dental assistant at a paediatric dental office and that was when I knew I had found my passion. I was able to build a rapport with each child and their parents, to the point where they could trust me, cooperate, and even say they can’t wait to come back. I was
fortunate to help educate children of all ages on the importance of oral health, hygiene, and nutrition. I became invested in the progress of every patient and showed them how much I cared. As a Dental Hygienist, I will be able to do so much more. Most of all, I want to give back and join organizations that promote oral health and hygiene to underprivileged children who do not have access to basic dental needs. I just want to make the world brighter one smile at a time.
We hope this scholarship offers you assistance during your dental hygiene journey and helps you on your way to achieving all your toothy goals.
