I am Adriana Dacres, a student at Claflin University pursuing a major in Environmental Science. As the motto from my past school says,"Res Severa Verum Gadium"; "hard work brings true joy." My goal is to maintain my 4.0 GPA which enabled me to earn an academic scholarship from the Alice Carson Tisdale Honours College. At Claflin, with God's help I will continue to work hard and strive for excellence. On my path to excellence I will continue to be involved in extracurricular activities, community service and participate in Summer Research Programs.
