“Receiving the Nsoro Scholarship will provide me with even more confidence and motivation knowing I can achieve anything I set my mind to.”

“Receiving this scholarship could help me prove to those people that just because I was in state’s custody does not mean that I am not going to be successful in life. I am a survivor and that is success in itself”.

“I want you to realize that I am willing to do my best at all I do when it comes to college. So I hope that you see me as a hard-working young adult and know that this scholarship money is being well invested.”

” I have been in the system since I was two. All my life all I ever heard is you will never make it out of high school, and you definitely won’t make it to college. My graduation from high school will be like a slap in the face to all the people who put me down.”

“Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. It is a blessing to have people so dedicated to helping students attend college.”

“I’ve never quit school, never tried to commit suicide, and never lashed out in a major way. I have an inner strength than can allow me to move mountains.”

“My guardian really stressed the fact to me that I had a chance to be better than my family ever was. I will be the first in my family to go to college. So I thought to myself that I can do things that are out of my families reach.”
