My name is Jennifer Farah and I am a 40 year old, single mom of two boys. I currently attend Carolinas College of Health Sciences and working towards becoming a registered nurse. My dream is to be a critical care nurse, primarily trauma and ER. I am currently working part-time as a cashier and was very worried about how I was going to afford the nursing program. This scholarship will help me out tremendously with all of the books I need to buy, help pay for my tuition, and help with the cost of my uniforms and other items I will need for my clinicals. I was so stressed looking at everything I needed for my upcoming semester and trying to figure out what books I could do without but winning this scholarship changed all that. I know that I will now be able to get all of my textbooks and won’t need to worry about missing information that I know I will need. I cannot begin to explain how thankful I am and how a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders allowing me to concentrate more on my studies and less on how to finagle finances with school.

Winning this scholarship is a huge blessing in my life. It will open many doors that will make it possible for me to successfully continue my education.
The scholarship money I will receive will go towards my main goal in life which is to attain a Medical degree and be able to possibly save lives. Attending the Milan Institute of Merced to become a certified Medical Assistant as well as being a full time student at Merced College to attain an AA degree has been a costly struggle. Educating me in an area where I can help others is more important to me than just your average student.
My recent heartache has lead me to this career choice with one thing in mind,” save lives”. Recently I have had to watch the most beautiful woman in my life lose her battle to a medical condition.
My determination to succeed in the Medical field is strong and the 10,000 dollar scholarship would benefit me by helping me accomplish this goal. I know I will succeed no matter what. Winning this scholarship will help me to invest in areas needed such as school supplies, school books, transportation, scrubs, and professional clothes. I can use the money to better research areas that will help me get to the level of profession in the Medical field I am striving for.
There are many things I am limited to as a student due to the fact I am unable to afford all the necessities needed. Although I manage to find ways without any money at all to buy scrubs and wardrobe from thrift stores, the struggle takes away from time I could be spending on my homework and studies.
The scholarship money is definitely going to help me be able to concentrate on my grades and having reliable transportation. Having the determination I have to succeed and one day be able to save lives is more than just any ordinary person’s determination.
Having to watch my little brother deteriorate and pass away from a medical condition in 2007, then having to watch my mother do the same thing in 2013 has made me realize I want to make a difference in this world by saving lives.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to be able to keep continuing my education so that I can better myself and better the lives of others. I also hope to give others that have been or are going through the same thing I have gone through hope, faith and courage.

My name is Edwidge Fleury. I am thirty-five years old and have two children. My daughter is 12 years old and my son is 10 years old. I am attending Palm Beach State College, and majoring in nursing.
I am face with many hardships and financial burdens. I have lost my job on June 12, 2014 and I have been unable to find a job. Having to put food on the table and trying to keep a roof over our heads has been nearly impossible, but I refuse to allow these obstacles to stop me from furthering my education. Returning back to school was one of the most important decisions that I made. My father always drilled into my head, “with hard work and perseverance, anything is possible.”
I am now a sophomore in college and have maintained an overall GPA of 3.52. After I graduate, I plan to continue my education and the BSN program at Palm Beach State College. Hopefully one day, my children will look back at all my obstacles, hardships, and struggles, and with proudness say, “my mommy made it.” I also hope they realize that there is no limitation to achieving one goal if one has perseverance and willing to work hard.
When I received the call from Scholarship4Mom, I was shock because I have never won anything before. I thought to myself another advertisement! I prayed, “Lord, as desperate as I am now, PLEASE let this be real!”
Receiving this scholarship will help me get one step closer toward my education. This scholarship will help me pay for my tuition, books, and resources needed to further my education. It will also help me to stay focus on my education and not so much on how am I going to my bills. Thank you very much for considering my application.

My name is Latricia Jenkins; I’m a 32 year old single mother that lives in Detroit Michigan with my two little boys, also I’m working full time at General Linen& Uniforms, Supplies. I am currently attending The University of Phoenix in Southfield for a Bachelor degree in Business Management. Most people have heard the saying ‘never say never’, well I am a witness to that saying .Four months ago my adviser told me that I could not receive financial Aid anymore but I’m able to take out loans for school and pay out of pocket. My heart start pounding and tears start coming down my eyes thinking I’m the middle of my degree and I've been working so hard to achieve my goals. So I got on my knees and prayed to God because I’m about to lose my education. A week later my adviser sends me websites to go on to apply for scholarships. I took out time in one day to apply for 20 scholarships, saying to myself I’ll never win these scholarships. So, I started looking for a part time job just for school and no one was hiring for part position, I’m thinking oh God I’m about to took on a lot of stressful things please help me. On May 19, I was very tired, I had just come home from work and the boys were all over me. I asked my sister she could watch them while I sleep for a few hours and just as I laid my head down I got a phone call from free scholarship. I was so mad at the time because I thought someone was playing on my phone until the woman on the other end started talking a little bit more about the scholarship. I was so in-denial still, I told my sister and she was happy. I got the email that the lady said I would get and I started to cry thinking God. At this time I will like to thank Free College Scholarships, LLC for giving me a wonderful opportunely to continue school. I plan to pay for school with this scholarship and give something to someone in need, my way of thanking God. I believe that anything happened by the grace of God. Also I am able to get my laptop fix, I've going to the library to use their computer. Thank you very much I am truly thankful.
