What the Empowering Greatness Scholarship Means to Sarah
As a first-generation college student living through a pandemic, this scholarship could not have come at a better time. Lately, I have definitely been worried about paying for my college-related expenses. However, a huge financial burden has been lifted off of my back and the backs of my parents. I am truly thankful to the Farah and Farah Scholarship Committee for selecting me as a recipient. Because of this scholarship, I can focus more on my studies and achieving my professional and community service goals. I am forever thankful for your investment in my success and for impacting my life positively.
