I’ve always loved science and this summer I was able to realize a long term goal of contributing to the space program in a meaningful way. I am participating in a NASA Internship and working on the Orion Project which will play an important role in NASA’s journey to Mars. The Dallas Hebrew Free Loan’s William Trunk Memorial Loan program assists students who focus on the hard sciences. This interest free loan student loan helps me to afford Texas A & M University where I am majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Astrophysics. I’ve had the freedom to both pursue my academic and career goals, while still being able to contribute in a significant manner to the Jewish community and the University at large.
