Over the past 30 years, Abrahamson & Uiterwyk has had the distinct honor of representing thousands of injury victims. We wanted to show our appreciation and give back to the community, so we established a scholarship program. The purpose of the program is to help students further their education and work toward their dreams. The scholarship program required that students write essays about safety. We have had hundreds of applications over the years, but a few students stood out, and we’d like to tell you about them.
Komel S. Patel
Komel S. Patel was a freshman at the Florida International University when she won our scholarship contest. As part of the contest, applicants were asked to create a Family Safety Contract and to write an essay about the importance of the contract. Out of hundreds of applicants received at that time, Komel’s essay (which can be read here) stood out. In her essay, Komel talked about her own experience having almost been injured in an accident while she was walking in a parking lot texting on her phone. Komel pointed out the importance of drivers and pedestrians being aware of their surroundings at all times to keep everyone safe. We are proud of Komel and we know she has a bright future.
Isaac Boulter was a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill when he won our scholarship contest. In his application, Isaac wrote an outstanding essay (which can be read here) on the topic of distracted driving. In his essay, Isaac included important statistics as well as personal stories. Isaac discussed the importance of not taking the risk of distracted driving as the results can be deadly. Isaac wrote an excellent essay, and we wish him all the best.
Sona Patel was a student at the University of Michigan when she won our scholarship contest. Sona was an active student with a strong interest in finance. Sona and the other applicants were asked to write an essay about distracted driving. Sona wrote a compelling essay (which can be read here) encouraging people to avoid distracted driving. In her essay, Sona notes that even briefly taking your eyes off the road can lead to devastating consequences. We are proud to honor Sona and know she’ll make the most of her future.
