Drawing Date: November 15, 2015

I'm a single mom of 2 beautiful girls. I have a few disabilities. One is apexa. Apexa is a brain injury that I got when I was a baby. It disrupts the speech. So the signal from the brain to my mouth is disrupted. It doesn't make it easy to learn. I don't remember thing from book I'm hands on learner. I have look at defend jobs and the colleges here in Idaho. I have always loved doing hair so I decided to go and get my cosmetology degree. Most of the schooling it hands on. That is the best way to learn for me. I went to another school and they were not teaching me the right stuff. So I look at other schools that have the right teaching. Then I found Paul Mitchell. They teach everything I need to know. I'm going to Paul Mitchell the school. I love it there. I have learned so much so far. So many wonderful people that is going or work at the school. They make going to school fun and don't look down at me. I look forward to school each week. For the first time in my life I enjoy school. I have less then 900 hours left in my schooling. I can't wait until I'm done. I really look forward in life that I can do it. I will have a job that I know I can do it for the rest of my life. All the money I get from you will be going to my school. This will bring down the bill down for me. This will be one less thing to stress or worry about. And I can do the job and spend time with my girls. I want to say a big thank you for picking me. I felt like so happy that I can be getting this money!

Growing up in a church, I know me being chosen as the winner of Freecollegeschoarships.net's $10,000 is a blessing so I will first like to start off by thanking God! Each month for a year I registered for the $10,000 scholarship just for the heck of it because I honestly couldn't believe I'll actually win! However, I did win and me winning couldn't have came at a better time in my life. For a year now I've taken interest in nursing school. I am very compassionate of others and truly look forward to being in peoples lives when their in the stage of getting better and getting over hurdles in life. I've recently been accepted to Stone Academy's LPN Program. I wasn't fortunate to receive any scholarships from the school at the time of my acceptance or receive that much money in grants through financial aid. Seeing how hard it is to pay for school makes me regret not doing too well in highschool, but motivates me not to fool around in college. Therefore, since I had to make a plan for the monthly payments so I can attend the program I will use this $10,000 scholarship for that. Also, I will be using the scholarship for school books, student loans and my school uniform. Thank you so much for selecting me as the winner!

Hometown: Reno, NV

Drawing Date: August 15, 2015

My name is Sierra Wright and I am a 21 year old full time student at the University of Nevada Reno pursuing a bachelors degree in Speech Pathology and minoring in Drawing for Art Therapy. My dream is to become a Speech Pathologist with an emphasis on Art Therapy so I can help children with communicative disorders. At first when I signed up for this I did not expect that I would actually win something as huge as $10K but I did and I am extremely grateful for this incredible opportunity. I pay for my own schooling so when that call came in, I was amazed and excited to know that I actually won something. This scholarship will help me out hugely when it comes to paying my tuition for school, buying all of these textbooks I need in order to pursue my dream, and paying rent for my apartment because although I am working, I only get paid minimum wage which is hard to use when paying rent. Being a full time student in college is really stressful and wining this scholarship really helped me feel relieved and now I am able to not worry about if I will be able to pursue my dream or not.

Truly I have been blessed, because I have been trying to figure out, how was I going to pay for my schooling, at first I thought I have never won anything in my life, if God could just bless me with this one thing I would be so happy, and he did, if had been for this scholarship for moms I would not have the opportunity to attend the school I wanted. All I can say is Thank you, no matter how old you get the opportunity is out there for you to go too school.

Hello world! My name is Ashlei Rogers and I hail from St. Louis, MO. I am overjoyed by this blessing I have received in being named the 10k scholarship winner! ..(After submitting an application ONCE, might I add). It has been a rocky road for me to get back into school, with being a mom and working it's easy to fall into the daily routine of life. Last year, I started to apply for better paying jobs and quickly came to the conclusion that I was not at my best in this competitive workforce. At that point, I decided it was time to finally finished what I had started 8 years ago. I will be pursing an Online BA in Business from AIU. This scholarship will help fund my educational needs so that I may also plant the seed for my non-profit organization I plan to start up in the near future. My ultimate goal in life is to serve and impact as many lives as I can. In the same manner in which 10kforschool.com has blessed me I only pray to one day be a blessing to another in the exact way! Thank you. Thank you. I recently rededicated my life to Christ, and the blessings I have been receiving are extraordinary! I thank God for the favor he has on my life. I want to also dedicate this win to my cousin, Monique Dotson who passed away the same day I received the notification I'd won. In her honor, I promise to accomplish every goal I set for myself and to live my life on purpose. I didn't think this could happen to me, but God saw differently. I can now say good things happen to good people and truly believe it, keep fighting! You're time is coming too have faith and apply! Romans 8:28 -God Bless

Trevor Petski

Hometown: Panama City, FL

Drawing Date: January 15, 2015

My name is Trevor Petski. I'm 22 years old and am currently enrolled at Auburn University working to complete my bachelors in electrical engineering. Going away to school has really helped me get out from under my parents and has really helped me grow to be more independent and very appreciative of my parents. Though, I live apart from them I am unable to have a job while taking classes full time, thus I am completely financially dependent on them. I have thus far paid my way through school with loans, and when I graduate I will have to hit the work force running in order to pay then off. Winning this scholarship seemed to have popped out of thin air. I'm incredibly grateful to receive this because it means I can, in a way, give back to my parents for all they have given me. I'm overwhelmed that someone would give me $10k to help me go to school and ultimately get into a career I can be proud of. I won't be proud because of me but it will be because of the people who helped me fund my dreams.
