Events/Programs

Thanks to the Beauty & Brains Scholarship, I have been granted some financial security for college, but beyond this, it has taught me to be grateful for all the opportunities that I have been blessed with. It has shown me how I can be a mentor, providing tips about college, like the organization does. This scholarship has reminded me that there are people other than myself and my family that believe in my future success, and are rooting for me. This scholarship has pushed me to be better, reminding me every time that I wear my pink D.Y.M.O.N. t-shirt to take pride in my intelligence, share my talents with others, and encourage them to do the same. “

“This scholarship helped me get school supplies I needed my freshman year, and also helped me get a computer for my interior design classes.”

Here’s her encouraging words for upcoming college students:
“I would tell students to take those AP classes! As many as they think they can handle, because it really helps with tuition. Also, pay attention to scholarships within your major and EVERYONE can study abroad if they do the work needed to get there. Also, parties are not worth your education. You can get taken out of school for smoking and drinking underage in a heartbeat.”
