Receiving the Addiction and Science Award led me to my first internship at NIDA after high school. I was able to learn about the work day-to-day that goes behind informing the public about the impact of drugs on their life, and the network or groups that have a vested interest in events like the National Drug Facts Week. Now I'm impacting people's lives in different ways by helping students broaden their horizons through travel abroad. -- Jada Dalley
