Umanda Weerasinge

Alumni Advisory Board

I received my New Futures scholarship in 2014, which allowed me to graduate from Montgomery College with a Life Sciences degree and pursue Neuroscience at American University. I am extremely grateful to my New Futures family for being the stepping stone in my education and giving me endless support.

Recently, I graduated from American University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Neuroscience and a minor in Biology and Communication. In the near future I hope to find a job in the field of research or medicine. Later in the year, I will be applying to get my Master’s degree and continue on.
