Kathryn "Kaye" Stripling UH Tier One Scholarship Endowment
First and foremost, I have many hobbies that I think have shaped me into the person I am today. When I was younger, I almost always had my nose in a book; thus began an obsession that continues to this day. I absolutely love painting in my free time, especially oil painting (I have maybe 100 paintings lying around my house that I don’t know what to do with). Another passion of mine is playing the piano, which is a great outlet for stress relief. My inspiration absolutely comes straight from my parents, who are my biggest role models and the best parents anyone could ever ask for. I hope to one day make them very proud.
Campus and Community Involvement
I volunteered this past summer as a Chemistry 1 and Chemistry 2 tutor in the Lamar Fleming building. I am also involved in two campus organizations. The first organization is the Lebanese Student Association, for which I am the historian. The second is called Orthodox Christian Fellowship, which is a ministry program for Orthodox students.
Awards and Honors
I graduated high school 11th in my class. I was a part of many honor societies, including National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Honor Society. Concerning my art, I have received the Rodeo’s “Best of Show” award twice and the Gold Metal award once. I have also received a scholarship for a summer course at the Glassell School of Art.
I hope to one day study abroad just to be able to immerse myself into an entirely different culture and experience a whole new facet of humanity. Hopefully, this experience will be in the near future.
My current plan is to attend medical school after my undergraduate studies are complete and to hopefully be able to follow in my father’s footsteps. I hope to one day pursue a career as a doctor and be a part of future medical discoveries that could potentially save lives.
