Lewes resident Rozi Diane Berberian, who got the nickname “Rambo Rozi” from her friends for her fearlessness throughout her fight against cancer, believed an international outlook and skills gives people a competitive edge in a culturally diverse world. During her life, she spent countless hours and raised thousands of dollars to support overseas study for students of Delaware Technical Community College – Owens Campus.  

Rozi Berberian lost her fight against cancer in July 2020 at the age of 38.
