Nancy Lorraine Jensen Memorial Scholarship Recipient

Hello Ms. Fairchild,
Here is my story:
As the recipient of the Nancy Lorraine Jensen Memorial Scholarship, I am incredibly thankful toward the Sons of Norway Foundation for investing in my education so I have the ability to concentrate my effort on my studies. I have chosen to attend Iowa State as a chemical engineering major not only because I genuinely love studying math and chemistry, and enjoy problem solving, but also because I have a passion for the people I can someday help with this major. After I earn my bachelor’s degree, I plan to work toward my doctorate, specializing in pharmaceutical development. Throughout the years, I have watched close family members suffer through countless harsh diseases: heart disease, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and every type of cancer imaginable, unable to receive or afford proper treatment. My dream is to work in this industry and find a way to make the necessary medicines more affordable and more widely available to patients who have so little hope. Sons of Norway has blessed me beyond I can express by partnering with me as I pursue my education and I cannot wait for the day when those who have sacrificed financially for my education can receive a return on their investment in the form of pharmaceutical treatment for a loved one, or even for themselves.
Thank you once again,
Danielle Eeg

Both pics are from Norway...the top one was taken in front of the palace in Oslo,
and the bottom was from the summit of Bitihorn, a peak in the Jotunheimen mountain
range. I studied Norwegian literature and Scandinavian Government & Politics while
in Norway this past summer.
