$2,000 Resolve to Evolve Scholarship Award Winner - Best Overall

Joanne N.
Sacramento, CA

"I am honored to being recognized as the Resolve to Evolve Scholarship winner. Scholarships.com has made the scholarship searching process much easier, and I am glad my counselor introduced me to the site! Scholarship searching is a long and arduous process, but the site has matched me up with doable scholarships that I am eligible for. Next fall, I will be enrolled in UC Berkeley studying Public Health, where I can learn about the policy and medical sides of health care. I hope to use my bachelor's in Public Health to better my community with health advocacy. After my bachelors, I plan to go to medical school where I can study Internal Medicine. I hope my knowledge in medicine and health policy will make an impact on the underprivileged. Presently, I am involved with multiple community service organizations and am continually obsessed with Harry Potter."
