Raya Bayor, Presidential Scholar
How has your scholarship helped you?
As a Presidential Scholar, I have access to one-on-one counseling; early registration, and I live in one of Hunter’s resident housing units. The scholarship program offers workshops on many topics that help prepare me for life at Hunter College and beyond. I am originally from Togo-West Africa. As a Hunter student, I stepped out of my comfort zone and met wonderful people from all parts of the world. I learned about and embraced the various cultures represented at the college. I am grateful for my Hunter College family, my great professors, and President Jennifer J. Raab who created a safe environment for scholars to voice their opinions and ideas.
