"My family was not going to be able to take out loans,” she said. “So when I found out about the scholarship and realized I didn’t have to worry about the financial burden, I could focus on my studies and my career instead of trying to juggle that with working multiple part-time jobs. It opened up so many options for me."

On the Path to Helping Children

For Theiline Gborkorquellie, M.D. ’13, her path started when her mother, a nurse, died when she was only 11. The trauma of the event, along with the values of service and care that her mother had instilled in and modeled for her, set her on the path toward a medical career. With the help of scholarships, today, Dr. Gborkorquellie is a pediatrician at Children’s National Hospital.
