Hello, My name is Mykirah. I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism (Graves Diseases) in early February of 2020. Hyperthyroidism is an auto-immune disease. My mom has Graves’ disease as well. I am applying for this scholarship because I will be graduating high school June 2021 and enrolling into college in Fall 2021. My mom is a single-parent and raising three kids. I really need help covering tuition, room and board, and books for school. Hopefully, this scholarship can help me relieve some of the stress of paying for college.

Applying for this scholarship will help me in so many ways as I prepare for my freshman year of college to become a nurse. Living with my depression and anxiety disability I would love nothing more than the opportunity to help others like myself. Me becoming a nurse is important and this scholarship can help me this year. -Thank you

I have Relapsing/Remitting Multiple Sclerosis and this scholarship would help me out greatly so I can focus less on having to pay for school (as a current University Freshman) and more on my treatments!

I would like to apply for this scholarship to raise awareness for Spina Bifida patients. I had surgery when I was 2 years old - the doctors told me I may not be able to walk again. Now, I run; I am a senior in high school, a varsity athlete, and plan to keep striving and beating the odds as I did throughout life.

This scholarship will be very helpful to me to become a nurse with my disability. I’ve struggled through so much and would love to pay it back by helping someone else just like me by becoming a nurse.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
