“I realized in high school that I was different. I am classified with autism, but I want people to know that being African American and having autism makes me stronger. My parents don’t have money to send me to school and people told me I couldn’t get in. But with this $10,000 scholarship, I will be the first one in my family to go to university and I can go to my dream school, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.”

“I come from an underprivileged community and my dream school was UC Berkeley. Everyday I tried to find ways to pay for school. I was so happy to find out I won a $10,000 scholarship. It’s really going to take a lot of weight off my shoulders because a lot of people think it’s just a financial stress, but it really manifests into so much more when you’re paying for it with money you don’t have.”

“Winning this scholarship is a huge amount of money for my education and I’ve always valued my education above anything else. Having that $10,000 is going to significantly decrease my debt, significantly decrease the interest that I’m going to owe, and it’s really going to allow me to not be so stressed so it means the world to me.”

“I take as many shots as I can and hope for the best when it comes to scholarships. I grew up in a single family home. Money’s not always there, so I work as much as I can to pay as much as I can. I work over 40 hours a week. Personally, I believe that having won a $10,000 scholarship would make me capable of cutting down on my hours to focus on school.”
