Alessia Luzio  on 9/14/2020 10:03:22 PM

Hi there! My name is Alessia Luzio, my parents came from Peru in the year 2000. I have done over numerous hours of community service to help the people around me, because my family have installed in me to always help others in need. They've scarified endless nights to get to where they're now. Although they were few bumps on the rode I am glad to have them as role models to believe in myself and never give up. I want to be the American Dream for them, having few funds for me educational path is a struggle. Being in my senior year and working have helped me learn hot to save for college as well as learn more responsibility. I want to do the best that I can achieve to make my parents proud and winning this scholarship can help me do that. I would really appreciate if I had the oppurtinty if I won this! Thank you!

I am applying for this scholarship because I want to persuade my education further without any difficulty.

Daniel Chavez  on 9/8/2020 5:24:29 PM

Hello! My name is Daniel Chavez, born in Chicago and moved a couple times over the years and am now in Texas attending Coppell High School. I am now a senior and believe I am the best candidate to win this scholarship because I feel that I have a variety of characteristics which exemplify the care and love which is needed by others in this world. I along with a few friends have helped raise awareness in a little brand we call "Ecoppellians" and have sold reusable bags in hopes that people may stop littering. We do this every year in an event our community holds in order to take care of the Earth, as well as the inhabitants which live on it such as us. Along with that, although this may not be a lot, my family and I never hesitate to give money to others on the street. We believe that we must give; whether they use it for the better is up to them, but just knowing that we helped out in the community really brings a smile to our face. As I am nearing the end of my high school career, I hope to be given this major opportunity in winning this scholarship. I would love to start my business career knowing that it would be easier for my family and I. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I hope you take this into consideration!

Sarah Alsahli  on 9/7/2020 12:17:34 PM

I am applying for this scholarship to receive a great education at the university I want. I currently go to a community college to save my parents money, but I would love to transfer to The university of Detroit mercy because they have an excellent nursing program but because of the pricing of the school, that is currently not in the question. I am blessed regardless but hope I receive this scholarship so that I can follow the career and education path I want. Thank you!

Jesselyn C  on 9/6/2020 6:25:02 PM

Hi, I am applying for this scholarship because money has always been an issue in my family. Whether it be the lack of clothing, or short on rent. My mother has worked extremely hard to keep our family running and I'd hate to have my college tuition become a problem as well. I've tried my very hardest to succeed in school so that I could have a better opportunity to strive in college. Unfortunately, due to family situations, I lost time and energy for school. Luckily, in time for college applications, I am hopeful that I can focus on my end goal of succeeding with a bachelor's degree.

Blairlanee B  on 9/6/2020 2:39:25 PM

He wants me to attend a community college near me but I want to attend Texas Christian University because of their nursing program.. It is so expensive and my mom can not afford to send me here..

I'm an asian high school senior who's parents thinks that she isn't equipped for getting any scholarships from anyplace. I need to refute them. Since we moved in the USA a couple of years prior, my parents don't make enough money to pay my college tuition in the future. I need to get a full-ride scholarship or any small scholarships for my dream college. Not only I want money for my college but also I want to help my parents with some money. I want to become a neurosurgeon and want to make my parents so proud that they will feel blessed to have me as a child.

Lula A  on 8/25/2020 11:58:28 AM

Hi! As an incoming senior looking at colleges and tuition for next year, I am a little overwhelmed! I am applying for this scholarship because a college career can help me one day pay back those in need, again! My freshman year of high school I donated 8 cases of peanut butter from local grocery stores to Haiti. Last summer, I went to Haiti to visit the recipients of that peanut butter and it was a feeling that I will never be able to top, or even explain. It was empowering, but also humbling... Why do I, a human being of the same age and importance, have so much more than others? Many people would respond to that question with, "Well that's just life. Life isn't fair". My response to that is yes, but we can help! A college degree will allow me do more and to travel to more third world countries and do bigger things than just donating peanut butter, supporting the local artists by buying their artwork, and volunteering in the orphanages and occupational therapy clinics!

Brian Tran  on 8/24/2020 2:19:38 PM

I want to be the one person in my family that is actually able to make it out of our hometown and accomplish the goals I've set out for myself. My grandma, my cousin, and all three of my brothers never even graduated high school. they all push me to do my best because they don't want me to end up just like them, and neither do I.

Zoe F  on 8/23/2020 1:29:33 PM

I am applying for this scholarship so I can continue with my education and make something of myself. My family has always struggled and it hurts seeing that. With furthering my education and gaining scholarships soon enough I might be able to repay them for everything they've done, even while struggling

Tyerra B  on 8/22/2020 3:31:36 PM

I am applying to this scholarship because I want to continue my education but I come from a family that simply can't afford to support my goals. I aspire to be a RN so I'm sure my hard work will help me pay off my loans but a scholarship would be everything plus more.

Valeria S  on 8/21/2020 4:15:41 PM

Hi I currently a senior attending Arizona christian University. I am applying for this scholarship because as my senior year approaches I am struggling with financial problems due to my tuition going up this year and having no financial help. As a senior I have taken many loans but unfortunately even with loans it would be tough to pay my last year. I would hate to quit now, I am so close to finish line and would appreciate some help so I can finish off my last year.

ICis H  on 8/21/2020 2:01:01 PM

Greetings! I'm interested in pursuing this award. In the winter, I will be attending Chamberlain University to pursue a degree in nursing . During this pandemic expenses for college have became tuff.

Amelia J.  on 8/21/2020 12:14:18 PM

Hello! My name is Amelia Joyce and I am applying for this scholarship because I have big goals for myself. I am pushing myself to achieve greatness in my near future as I hopefully enter the business world after attending to a top notch university that will get me there. Unfortunately, these colleges are becoming harder and harder to afford. With this scholarship I hope to be aided on my journey and not left in piles of debt after completing college. With loads of debt, I fear I will be dragged down and unable to accomplish my goals.

Michael M.  on 8/20/2020 10:58:47 PM

I am applying for this scholarship so I can actually go to school and pull out the least amount of loans possible. I am the first person in my family to go to school and I don't want to put it off. I am also applying for this scholarship because no one should be hungry. I know what it is like to go hungry some days. Back in the day when it was just my mom sometimes we didn't. Have enough money to get the amount of groceries we needed. Things are better now, but I know what it is like.

Asley Martinez  on 8/20/2020 6:40:42 PM

Cassidy F.  on 8/20/2020 11:32:43 AM

I am applying for this scholarship for a few reasons. First, I would say that along with most people, I want to be the first in my family to become a college graduate and do something productive with my life. I want to help the world become a better place and in order for me to do that I need a college degree. The pandemic has cut funding and our usual high school scholarships have been cut and made harder to get. That makes it even harder to obtain so at this point I am looking for other ways to be able to finance my education.

Layla G  on 8/20/2020 9:27:59 AM

My name is Layla and I am applying for this scholarship to help out with books and other expenses. I would love to me the first out of my entire family to go to college and complete a degree. I am wanting to become a dental hygienist and with this scholarship money it would be a tremendous help toward my goals.

Megan B  on 8/19/2020 11:19:20 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I am very set on the idea of going out of state for college. Out of state tuition prices are very high and applying for scholarships can easily help ease the cost of attending college!

I am applying for this scholarship so that I can be the first in my family to go to a university college and major in nursing and minoring in biology. I’ve had the dream of doing medical work since I was just a kid and with my hard work and support from my family I am starting my journey to turn that dream into a reality.

Kylie H  on 8/18/2020 8:54:37 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I want to be the first person in my entire family to attend college. I have a lot of responsibilities on my shoulders, and live with only my Grandfather. This puts us in a tight position for money, and any financial aid would help me out. I am actually apart of a program at my current high school, which gives students who struggle with money, have a way to get free food every Friday, and no child deserves to go hungry over the weekend. I hope that going to college and getting a real paying job in the Psychology field will put me in a position to help out my family financially, especially my siblings. But I also strive towards my goal of wanting to make sure that I make a difference in the world, or at least in someones life. No child deserves to go hungry over the weekend while they are not at school, or struggle mentally. Thank you for offering this scholarship, as many people now days struggle to find the money for college.

Hailey R  on 8/18/2020 5:19:57 PM

Ana R.  on 8/18/2020 3:43:19 PM

Hello, my name is Ana Romero. I'm currently a college student pursuing my dream career in becoming a dental hygienist. I am on the verge of completing my A.A. degree and will now be applying soon to enter the dental hygiene program at my college. I am the eldest daughter of immigrant parents. For many years I have seen my parents work their absolute hardest to provide for my college education. I for once want to be able to work hard as ever and be able to provide for my dental hygiene program. Being awarded this scholarship would be an amazing opportunity, because I will be able to accomplish my academic goals. All I have ever wanted was to be successful and be able to help others in so many ways. Whether that be lending a helping hand or in the future make someone confident about their smile. I have experienced many hardships in my young life and seeing others just pass by and not help, has always been something so hurtful to experience. Being of help to others is all ever want to do in life and if I can achieve this; my life would be complete.

Melanie B  on 8/18/2020 11:09:04 AM

I have taken the opportunity to apply for this scholarship as it will benefit me by allowing me to continue to further my education without the financial stresses. I am currently majoring in nursing, as I am passionate about providing others with the best care, and continuing to learn even throughout my career. I believe obtaining this financial assistance would allow me to focus on my college and career goals, which has become difficult as I pay for my tuition due to the typical financial stress of college and now along with the issues due to the current pandemic.

Khushi P  on 8/16/2020 8:03:21 PM

Hello, my name is Khushi Patel. I am applying to this scholarship. I want to become a radiation oncologist in the future and help find the cure or get closer to finding the cure to at least one type of cancer. My parents may not pay for my tuition and I do not want to rely on them. I am the first generation of kids to go to a college in America. I really need this scholarship. This summer I have contributed in raising money for foundations. I made an art page and 10 to 20% of my proceeds go to movements or crisis or foundations who help the people in this world. I raised $50 from that and then put in $50 from my own pocket. I gave $50 to BLM and $50 to Yemen Crisis. I have decided every time I raise $50, I will put $50 of my own and split the $100 and give it to different foundations each time.

I want to go to college so I can have a life where I don’t have to worry about if I can pay my rent or if I can’t. I am not graduating any time soon I just want to be prepared for anything. I play basketball and I love to read. I make decent grades and study. I am proud to say that I make my grandma happy with my grades. I always wanted to become a dental hygienist or a dentist. People might say I’m a social butterfly. I sometimes think I have it hard and then you see kids who don’t get to eat and the homeless than you see that you have it easy. It breaks my heart to see that. There are kids who are simply scared to ask for food from anyone at my school because people are mean their afraid of what people will think. I might not know what it feels like not knowing when I’m going to eat but I know what it feels like to be scared of telling people anything. I see kids will there mom and wish I had that. Kids ask me where’s my mom and I am afraid of what people will think of me if I tell them she’s not active in my life. It sucks. So yea this is my shot of trying to get this scholarship!!

I never want to see anyone that low in the dumps again, so thats why I'm so dedicated to pursing an higher education and I will I use this same dedication ams passion to obtain my Nursing degree.

Gilbert B  on 9/28/2018 1:00:41 AM

Hello, my name is Gilbert Barroso. I am a sophomore in college, I applied to this scholarship because I do believe I have made a change within my community. I am the secretary of the Sociology club in Oxnard College. Studying Sociology has taught me so much, I help run a food pantry at school. We welcome anyone regardless of their income. Due to the high cost of living skyrocketing, we the students have taken action into our own hands. We open our food pantry at 11:30 am and close at 2:00 pm. We welcome students to come and take snacks before their classes start, as well we do welcome our local community to participate. I've always been involved with my community since the longest I could remember. I helped clean up certain neighborhoods in my city, as well I've volunteered with a local group for the special population. During my high school years, I was looked up to, I had the opportunity to speak to the board of my local district. Our academies came under threat after they wanted to pull funding from them. As a student who was heavily involved in the academy, I stood my ground and fought for my education. I plan on becoming a sociologist because I would love to return as a guidance counselor to my old high school that helped me become the person I am today.

Marquis B  on 6/18/2018 10:15:48 PM

I am Marquis Borner and I should be selected for this scholarship because a college education will empower me to be great. Obtaining my college education will empower three essential areas in my life: improve my way of thinking, increase my finances, and help me to be able to control my own destiny. My mother always taught me that without an education, you cannot and will not live up to your fullest potential. She always told me not to give up on my dreams and goals. This way of thinking has created a foundation to who I am and it is a great start for my future. However, gaining an education will not only build on that foundation by deepening my thought process; but also, challenge me to dream big and perform at my highest potential. I realized as a little boy that having money allows people to live a certain lifestyle. As a little boy, I said to one of the leaders at my church, “I am going to drive a Mercedes like yours when I grow up.” He said, “Son, get a good education and then you will be able to buy whatever you want.” Now days just to work at McDonald you have to have a college degree. And as I get older, I realize it is getting harder and harder to make a living without a college degree. But, I don’t want to settle on just being able to make a living (and driving a Mercedes Benz), I want to be a blessing to others. Therefore, getting an education will pave the way for me to be able to improve my finances and be able to give back to my community. Last year, I lost a good friend of mine name Ladejrick “LD” Cox to gun violence. At first I was blind to my surrounding and I just want to enjoy my teenager years. But after seeing my helpless friend lying in a hospital bed, knowing this would be the last time I would see him alive, that changed me. At that moment, I decided I would not be another victim of my circumstances and I would not be another black male statistic. I started looking at life differently. I want to be able to work hard so tha

My name is Carson. I am from Lisbon, New York. I am a high school senior seeking financial assistance for college in the fall. Throughout my time in high school I have been apart of the National Junior Honor Society and the National Honor Sociey. Our organization has hosted food drives as well as participated in collecting food for the food pantry. I have volunteered for a charitable organization called “Lights on the River”. At this event I have collected donations of money and food items for our local food pantry. I have also assisted at the local food pantry in Lisbon. I would very much appreciate and feel honored to receive this scholarship aid to help me on my journey through college.

Jaden A  on 3/29/2018 5:25:52 PM

My name is Jaden. As a rather young individual going off to college, I would love any all all scholarships I can get in order to help ease the burden on my parents. I consistently help out with my church's pantry, which is also connected to other services such as how we serve food to the homeless. I hope I can get this scholarship so that it takes a great weight off my shoulders.

Audry S  on 1/28/2018 1:03:12 PM

My name is Audry Scheele and I graduated high school in 2017. I didn't apply to college because I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in. To this day I still don't. I missed the opportunity to apply for scholarships while still in school because none of them applied to me. Since I want to go to college now this is my chance to receive financial help with tuition. This scholarship in particular perked my interest because I've assisted with a food bank weekly; packing meals for more than 2,000 people each time with the help of many other volunteers.

Sevastian H  on 11/29/2017 10:19:21 AM

Please tell me I can’t do something because I'll try even harder to prove you wrong! Like many other students I know, I've traveled a bumpy road to get to where I am today, but those obstacles gave me strength and helped me appreciate the truly important things in life. Me Sevastian Hernandez have came a long way to not get scholarship money.

Margaret S  on 11/28/2017 6:13:57 PM

Hello, I am Margaret Schlosser, a senior at Paloma Valley High School. My goal and aspiration are to help the community in the way I can, through protecting, laws being followed, and justice being served. I will be providing that by graduating college with a degree in criminal justice. Within criminal justice, there is a lot of leadership aspects and qualities. I have grown up to be a leader, within the high school I was put in the position of the XO of the Battalion in NJROTC. It is quite scary to know that you are in second of command for 220 students but with the time, experience, and knowledge that I have gained over 4 years in my high school. The ability to do something that is major that can't be affected by having money is important for me. I don't and won't allow having money be in the way in my opportunities. The ability to have much money will be amazing to grasp every academic opportunity that I can have and to provide myself with materials needed for my academic career. Thank you so much

Justin M  on 11/26/2017 2:16:19 AM

My name is Justin Magers and I'm trying to play football in college. Unfortunately, with how expensive schools are in D3 with them mainly being privatized, it's hard for my family to do so. I have been asked to play at Luther College due to me being a leader in the classroom and the on the field. I've been a Varsity starter for 2 years, taken part in many Ap and Honors classes, and volunteered with a local canine rescue group. Please help me, help my family out with the financial burden of college.

Latrice J  on 11/12/2017 6:22:01 PM

My name is Latrice Jones and I try to be the best I can be for myself and others. Although I look at my life "blessed", I always keep in mind how easily a blessing could be taken away as well as it is received. I try to do my part in the community by giving money to homeless people who asks for food usually during a traffic street light stop. Anything helps; Spare change or a small bag a chips or water which i usually keep in the back seat of my car because i 'snack' a lot. There were also many occasion where I rescued dogs out of the street and kept them fed until l can find their owners or at least take them to an animal shelter. So far i was able to rescue a pit bulls, a Rottweiler, a Pomeranian, and a Yorkie. With prayer,hope and some fate, I was grateful to find the original owners for all the animals i found straying around and lost. I actually volunteered 3 years throughout high school at the Humane society for animals . It was fun and I really felt like i was truly giving back and doing my part at a citizen. I plan to go as far as possible with my education majoring in biological sciences. I hope to go to Med school as well to become a doctor. I plan to make my self and my family proud. My mother worked so hard with blood, sweat, tears, and elbow grease, for me to be presented with the opportunities I have. Being 23 and unemployed to truly focus on school ,I am hoping to relieve my mother from some of my financial responsibilities. I also find it really cool to have a chance to donate money to any charity of my choice. Thank you in Advance.

Deja K  on 6/24/2017 10:31:24 PM

Hello, my name is Deja Knox i'm here to apply for this scholarship at help out my mother with paying for college which has a low income. Around the time of thanksgiving and Christmas I helped out a nonprofit organization handing out food to the less fortunate in the community, and helping kids understand how to live in a society where you can do more than join a gang or stay in trouble. This would really touch there hearts when people are reaching out to them with open arms.

Emmanuel H  on 5/31/2017 9:00:08 AM

My name is Emmanuel Henderson, I live in Rocky Mount, NC. I have seen hunger and people in need. I hand out food every 3rd Saturday of the month to family in need of food. We do this in the rain, snow or sunny. I see people that are in need all the time. I also work with my father's Masonic lodge to support special need kids by building ramps and cooking food for programs for them too. We also provide bag lunches for kids on Thursday for kids over the weekends that don't get meals while they are out of school. I feel like the more hands to the plow makes more work that can be done.

Joann M  on 2/14/2017 1:54:55 PM

I have never seen a hungry body in person. I have never been hungry for more than 5 hours. I got locked in my room one time because the door got stuck and I didn't have my phone. I didn't eat lunch or dinner, I didn't eat for 11 hours. That was one of the most resonating instances I have with hunger. I remember my roommate busting in the door for me, and the first thing I said to her was, "let's get food". I was only extremely hungry for a few hours and I already felt the affects on my body and mind. Since then, I buy any and every homeless person food at any chance I get, because I can't stand fathoming the daily struggle of hunger. My major is Sociology and Spanish. I learned in my class about the statistics of people in poverty throughout the US, as well as the total injustice, that follows hunger and major poverty and illness in other areas of the world. I study this to make a difference in my future. I current am a junior at CSULB. My mom developed a terminal illness called MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) diagnosed in October 2011, and is still sick in the hospital today in 2017. I'm working about 30 hours a week, taking out loan by loan every semester and I'm simply struggling to get by in school because I have to work so much. This scholarship would make a world of difference in my academic, social, and personal life. I believe everyone deserves a great boost of help when in need, and I have not received that in the past 3 years of my college life. I also believe that whoever is in most dire need of this scholarship, as well as would use it to great purpose is deserving of this scholarship. Thank you, Joann Min

ShyAnn C  on 12/12/2016 3:51:21 PM

My name is ShyAnn Cook. I was born in White Salmon, Washington but i later moved to a small town of approximately 400 people. In this community, mostly all the people good have been considered in poverty and i was, in fact, on of those children. I was always unsure if i was going to be able to eat like most kids were able. My mom was only a high school graduate and in this day and age, if you have only a high school diploma, it is very hard to get a job. Being a young child and never knowing if i was going to be able to receive my next meal, i would always wonder if any other children were also having that same issue. As i got older i found out that there is a whole world full of children who were hungry. When I go to college, I plan to pursue my dream of becoming an ultrasound technician. With my extra money, I plan on giving to those young children in need. I never want any other children to have to endure the pain that I and many others have already gone through.

Anita C  on 12/4/2016 10:44:22 AM

My name is Anita Copeland. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. My purpose for writing this essay is to tell you why I should receive th Scholarship. I will also inform you why you won`t regret giving me the scholarship. I should receive this scholarship, so that I can change my future to make a difference in my community. So I can show the world that told me I can`t and I won`t, that I can and I will. I`m destined and enthused and also open- minded about my future. I`m young, I`m black and I’ve most definitely been told that I couldn’t do it. I have planned for my future for thirteen long years to be exact. From the time I was in pre k and I had to learn to spell my name to read. I had to know my numbers, so that I could count. My mother, aunt, uncle, teachers and other people in my life have helped, but it was me that had to do the things to get where I am today. I am currently a volunteer at youth spark this program deals with sex trafficking and homeless young girls that get put out their homes.

Hello, my name is Saja Odeh a sophomore attending Corona Del Sol high school in Tempe, AZ. I am a Muslim and I've been to my home town and I've seen how many people are starving how they dig in the trash for food, clothes etc.. I had some money because I was coming from American when ever I saw someone needing the money more than I did I handed it to them. The smile they gave me and the words they've said to me "God bless you" It was heartwarming. They were so thankful, I came home that same night told my mom all about it while talking about it I teared up knowing all these people are starving and not a lot of people were doing anything about it. I went to my mosque every time I entered me and my mom would put money in for it to go to the people in need. This hunger needs to end we need to stand up for what's right. They are people to they need the help. Thank you

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America.

The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation.
