2017 Milken Scholars SummitPhoto 33 of 42
Mohib Jafri (MS '17), who will study environmental science at Harvard, accepts his Milken Scholars award from program co-founders Mike and Lori Milken. "What you see before you are the future leaders of the world," said Mohib at the 2017 Los Angeles Scholars recognition dinner. "They've each either reached or are reaching the top of their respective fields. But what is most extraordinary about these people is just that—that they are people. Even though each Scholar has every ability to flaunt their innumerable achievements, they remain some of the most genuine, down-to-earth individuals you will ever meet. It is this humility they exude because of—not in spite of—their achievements that I will strive to emulate for my future."
