I will be attending BYU in the fall where I will be pursuing a degree in psychology, which is extremely important to me. I’ve dealt with mental illness challenges in friends, family, and even myself in the past several years, and I’ve felt the oppression in our society concerning these disorders. It’s hard to find good help, and it’s even harder to ask for it. I want to change that. I want people to feel comfortable admitting their problems and be able to find support, rather than living in fear of being judged or cast away. I want to be a mentor, coach, confidant, and friend to those in need. I want to help them build the courage to stand up, speak up, and fight for themselves, because I know that that courage lies in each of us. We just have to be brave enough to find it. This scholarship would help me achieve my dream of turning something dark in my life into a blessing that will allow me to identify with others on a personal level. I want to turn my greatest weakness into my greatest strength.
I truly believe that one person can change the world. I also believe that mental illnesses greatly cripple one’s potential. I want to help people change their lives around, so they in turn can be the force for good they were aways meant to be.
