Recipient of the Bill Spaniol Memorial Scholarship

When I learned that I had won the Bill Spaniol Memorial Scholarship, I found myself singing a” You’ll Never Walk Alone” the anthem of Liverpool football club, this is a song my father often played on his guitar and a song that is very dear to me. The lyrics…remind me that no matter where you go, how hard and discouraging life gets, and how lonely you might feel…there are always people with big hearts who are there to help you out of the goodness of their hearts.

This scholarship came at a time when I felt drained, discouraged and afraid of the future. From there, I found] myself in a community of selfless, ambitious and strong people. A people of vision, a people of hope and a people who help each other. I too hope I can live up to this greatness and give back to people regardless of how much or how little I have. To the donors of the Bill Spaniol Memorial Scholarship, thank you very much for this award, I am humbled and honored to be a recipient of this scholarship. I have a wide range of interests and a lot of dreams which I am working hard to make true, and your help only strengthens my chances of achieving them and bringing value to the world.
