Hello, I’m Andrea and I was selected as a recipient of the EALgreen Trustee Cash Gift Scholarship for $1000. I would like to start by expressing my gratitude for being selected. Currently, I am finishing up my summer classes which included an English class along with C.N.A. course. I am also working at McDonald’s and plan to work two jobs and go to school full time in the fall. Many people think I’m crazy and some days I would have to agree but I think the key to my success is being busy. Growing up with my parents before I was taken into foster care I watch my parents complain about their lives’ everyday but they never work to change it. That’s where my drive comes from, I want to be great and in order to be great, I must work for it. In closing, I’m truly grateful and honored for you generous scholarship and I pray you see the drive that I have and know that your money is being put to good use.
