I want to be a CARDIOTHORACIC SUrgeon.
My desire to help others stems from my own trials and tribulations of having two open heart surgeries. If it wasn’t for the doctors who have helped me through everything I without a doubt wouldn’t be here today. I want to be like them. I want to wake up everyday knowing I have the ability to change someone life for the better. I want to save people

i want to uplift the world through filmmaking
As a Motion Pictures major, it is my dream to create visual content that brings hope and light into our dark world. I want to make films that inspire others to unleash their creativity and celebrate their uniqueness. I believe cinema is a universal language. I intend to use that language to speak love and acceptance into the hearts of the world.

I want to use tech as a medium for social change.
I like to call myself a hacktivist. That’s not to say I spend my nights illustrating cyber attacks with Anonymous, but that my passion lies at the crossroads of innovation through emerging technologies and building solutions to the issues marginalised communities face. I manifest my hacktivism on three fronts: by teaching, creating, and advocating.

change the world one classroom at a time
I want to teach our future Doctors, Engineers, and Presidents kindness while teaching them how to add and subtract. I want to create a classroom that every student that walks out of thinks,"Wow! The world is in the palm of my hand." I want to go to low-income schools and pour into kids who don’t think they have a future beyond their background.

To Use Music to touch People around the world
Music is my passion. I love to write music and spend so much of my free time learning new instruments or writing songs. I want to be able to share my songs with the world, but with the job I currently have, I’ve lost the free time to write music. I’ve worked so hard to be here and with this scholarship I’m able to continue pursuing what I love.

encourage women to pursue their dream as a pilot
Through the use of my creative skills, I want to encourage women all over the world to pursue their dream as a pilot. Pushing aside the commercial pilot stereotype of a white, middle-aged male has really allowed me to imagine my dream career in a much different way. I want to encourage women to be able to do the same, and ultimately love their job!

to be a pediatric occupational therapist
I enjoy being around children and in particular, children with special needs. They have taught me many new ways to view the world. Their resilience and contagious smiles are inspiring. It would mean the world to me to have the ability to leave a lasting impact on their lives and celebrate victories of all sizes alongside them and their families.

ADVOCATE FOR PEACE THROUGH GLOBAL CONVERSATION
LIFE drives me. After traveling to Palestine a country who faces danger everyday due to a lack of conversation and understanding, I realized how much power words have. I want to live in a world where life is valued and violence is not the only way to gain power. I Know first hand the impacts of violence and wouldn't wish that on anyone.

PROVIDE VETERINARY CARE IN underserved RURAL AREAS
Growing up on a farm in rural South Carolina, I became fascinated with animal health. While the majority of veterinarians are employed in higher-paying metropolitan areas, I want to stay true to my roots and work as a farm vet. In this way, I know I can serve both animals and people by meeting a need, and fulfilling my passion for animal care.

There are currently over 39,000 veterans in the United States that are considered homeless. These men and women sacrificed themselves for our freedom and are struggling to find homes because of the increasing cost of living.

SET UP CHILDREN FOR SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS in life
Passion drives me to reach my goal. Kids begin showing incredible progress and pure happiness when they achieve something, which is rewarding, but their family members' joy is just as fulfilling. Many don't see the world the way an occupational therapist sees it, which makes it my priority to help society see that nearly anything is possible.

My experiences have made empowering minority, low-income families and individuals my objective, through mentorship and financial education.

I want to Make life saving medication affordable
Back in 2015 my brother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a disease that attacks the nervous system and can leave people paralyzed and affect vital life functions. My brother has been on medications and his current medication that essentially saves his life costs 104,000 dollars a year. Medication to save lives should not be this expensive.

I WANT TO INSPIRE WOMAN TO SEEK POLITICAL CAREERS
As a woman of color, being in the political realm is extremely challenging. We are under-represented, and I hope to change that narrative by becoming a Political Commentator.
