First of all, I love this scholarship. The reason why I applied for it is because I want to go to college, and get my bachelor's degree. I strongly believe that, when I get that money it will be helping me to moving forward in my life until me achieving my objectives.

I had so much fun making this crossword! And I got to do it about something I'm passionate about!

This seems like a really fun scholarship to fill out unlike others where you need like 3 essays lol

I plan on making one about star wars. I originally planned to compose one of strictly clone troopers, but their names would require many black squares. Instead, I shall include characters from all of the movies and shows (old republic and extended universe (legends) excluded).

Only a few people may find this topic interesting but I'm creating one about Clone Troopers. It's been a childhood highlight and it is now being revamped by the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7. Only true clone wars fans can complete this with moderate difficulty and no cheating. It is a true passion that can be quickly called upon so it shall be my topic.

I spent 12 hours straight doing this. It's a grind.

Valerie M  on 4/10/2018 2:04:21 PM

Don't freak out looking at this scholarship! It's not easy but it is not hard! Just try your hardest. If you are truly passionate about the subject you choose, you will fly right through it! GOOD LUCK!
