I want to congratulate the other deserving recipients of this award and extend my profuse gratitude to Oticon Hearing Foundation and the American Academy of Audiology Foundation for their generosity. Recognizing and providing support to audiology students like myself with underrepresented, minoritized identities, is an achievement to be celebrated.
