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.

In recent days, two drug manufactures, Pfizer and Moderna, have both announced that their COVID-19 vaccines have had more than a 90% success rate in clinical trials. The thought of a COVID vaccine is sure to raise anyone’s spirits, and while college students are likely to be at the back of the line when vaccines are distributed, some college officials are hopeful that students may be able to be vaccinated by late next spring or summer.

As this highly unusual Fall 2020 semester is nearing its conclusion, administrators are anxious to see how college students have responded to online learning – and how many students are likely to come back for a similar experience in the Spring of 2021. A new student survey from the learning platform company Top Hat finds that while many students are still adjusting to online learning, the majority of them intend to return to school for the Spring semester.
