As the years rapidly go by change is expected. Compassion and love seem to dwindle as well as caring for one another. I am applying for this scholarship because gender equality is one of if not the most important equality we as a people can have. It is just as equal as human rights and civil rights. No person should be discriminated on, hated on, or persecuted because of their gender identity, choice, or given birth whether gay, intersex, trans, bisexual, binary or non binary alike. As a current corrections nurse (LPN) I strive my hardest to ensure equality to the many "lost" LGBTQ whose lives still matter. Especially in the prison systems. Many are ashamed or embarrassed and hide their true identity in fear of inequality. I hope to make a change with that. I work closely with corrections officers and members of PREA (prison rape elimination act) daily to ensure there is no mistreatment of our LGBTQ prisoners and any inmates who happen to come to jail. That they are housed fairly and that they are not mistreated and are safe. I believe in equality for every human being and as I attempt to transition for my RN hope to one day come up with a bill to further help LGBTQ not just in prison and corrections systems but also juveniles struggling to identify and the concerns they may have while incarcerated.

I am applying for this scholarship, as gender equality and sexual orientations are really important to me. My siblings both identify as non-binary and people have made fun of them all their lives. This was a major hardship on me growing up because I was taught to love and accept everyone. Me, being the over protecter that I am, would always tell our parents or the school principle/teacher. I was made fun of, for my siblings. I attended the LGBTQ+ parade and march, I want to show everyone that its okay to be who you are and to not care what others will think of you! you are special, you are worth it.

Free College? Check Out These Tuition-Free Schools!

October 15, 2020

by Izzy Hall

At Scholarships.com, we help students find scholarships to pay for college tuition. But what if you didn’t have to pay tuition? There are a handful of schools in the U.S. that are tuition-free, meaning that while students may have to pay for room and board or meal plans, they do not have to pay tuition to attend the college. On the flip side, tuition-free schools may require students to work alongside their studies or, for military academies, to enlist upon graduation. [...]

One of the most beneficial outcomes of the pause of student loan payments has been the improved credit ratings of borrowers. [...]
