Matthew off Salem, MA was selected for an Essex County Youth Foundation Scholarship. He is receiving the Ormond and Minetta Scott Memorial Challenge Scholarship.
Matthew is a graduate of Salem High School who is looking to obtain a bachelor degree at Clark University for media and business. As a second goal that is also just as important to him, Matthew hopes to help give voice to voiceless through his art projects in music, film and writing. He contributes this goal through his own struggles that, while deemed a disability in the modern world, is just a gift in disguise.
