Bradly Olsen


“Growing up, I have always been in awe of my Dad and his constant sacrifice for our family. While it has been hard to grow up at home while he has been on deployment, I can’t imagine how hard it was to watch your kids grow up without you. I have never felt an absence of his presence or role in my life. He is my role model and I am so grateful to be honored with this scholarship and recognized for my father’s sacrifice for this country. He works harder than anyone I know. Now I’m working hard at UCLA for him.”
