Education to Empowerment is an exciting women’s scholarship program
Education to Empowerment Scholarship Recipients
Everything is going wonderfully for me as I begin my last semester at MCC. When I began my journey at MCC, I set a goal to graduate in two years but with a 4.0, and I’m thrilled to be in a position to achieve both goals. I’m proud to say that I have been accepted to NIU for the fall of 2015.
I am looking forward to getting back to school for the spring semester. I will be taking Culinary Arts 4 which involves cooking for the restaurant on campus. I recently visited Kendall College and Roosevelt University and have applied to both schools. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
I am still searching for schools to transfer to this fall, and I am excited to say I’ve narrowed it down to Illinois State and Roosevelt in Chicago. I am the president of Phi Theta Kappa, and honored to be nominated for an international distinguished officer award.
I will be attending Concordia University in Meqoun, Wisconsin in the fall. I’m really excited about it, because my brother Tanner is in his 2nd year of pharmacy school there. We will graduate together, something I think is very cool that we can experience together.
I am currently starting my second semester at Illinois State studying Psychology in the honors program. After receiving my degree, I plan to continue my education to earn a master’s degree in Psychology.
This spring semester, I am taking: Introduction to Manufacturing Process, Professional Development in Technology, Power Technology, Physics, and Intro Technical Drawing and Constraint-Based Solid Modeling. Thank you again for being a part of my life.
