Rohil Lal

Class of: 2017
School: One Tree Hill College
Scholarship Partner: Dick and Diana Hubbard
Rohil included the following quote in his First Foundation application:

“If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, just keep moving forward.”- Martin L. King Jr.

It is a wonderfully challenging quote and one that encapsulates the attitude that Rohil carries. His family immigrated from Fiji in 2008 and worked hard to create opportunities for their children. Rohil attended One Tree Hill College where he excelled in academics and school life, including sport and volunteer positions.

Rohil has a dream to work in the medical field as a doctor or surgeon and to give back not only to his immediate family but to smaller nations who wouldn’t have the available resource to employ medical professionals.
