Helllo !! My name is Brisa Sanchez. I'm currently a junior student in McEachern High school. I'm currently doing dual enrollment at a university. Math was always my favorite subject. I enjoy solving equations and focusing every class. The most importantly, I imagine myself in a university/college studying for an Accountant degree. I may not be the smartest person nor the top student in school, but what matters is that I want to reach for my goals and become a successful person. I hope looking forward for more scholarships! Thank you for this great opportunity! Have a nice day!

I am currently an international student graduate from a developing country - Nigeria. I graduated with a GPA of 3.5 from Lindenwood University. My professional goal is to utilize all the knowledge I have gained as an Accounting graduate to become a CPA. By this, I will become the first masters degree recipient in my hometown. This scholarship opportunity will enable to go back home in the nearest future, and improve the educational system for young girls in Nigerian.
