Crowley College Prep Scholarship Recipient
During my first year of college, my goal is to attend the University of Kansas and pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship. Advancing my education will supply me with necessary tools to know how to survive and thrive in the world of business. I have a passion for business, children, and all things sport related. Taking college courses focused on business, will gear me to be able to combine my passions into an idea that I can make a reality. I have a desire to create my own business that will positively impact my community.
While in college, I will continue to be an active member of my community. Volunteering and networking with like-minded people, whom I will maintain relationships with in life, is one of the benefits of advancing my education in a college setting. This is an exciting thought, as college is a larger-scale platform than high school, and thus will serve as a step up from the work I have experienced. I will continue stay close to family, grow as a person and as a leader while taking my next step in life.
