Scholarships for Average Students

Average Student ScholarshipsAre you frustrated by the lack of scholarships that seem to be available to ‘average’ students? You’re not alone. The term ‘average’ indicates that you are the ‘norm’ when it comes to students, which means there are plenty of students just like you, but it often feels as though scholarship providers are only interested in those who score insane numbers on their SAT, have perfect grade point averages, or come from a low-income family. In other words, if there’s nothing ‘special’ about you, you’re out of luck. Thankfully, this is not the case.

Here is a sampling of awards that any student, regardless of grades or income, can apply to and possibly win. Continue Reading…

Choose Your Words Wisely!

Shout it Out Rarely does a person get an opportunity to address a nation or the world; it’s usually during times of great hardship or war. Even then, few are able to capture our attention for any length of time. It takes a certain skill, but given the right circumstances and speaker, words can start a movement or create change. Words can rally a nation to stand together or they can insight others to take action against injustice. Words can also provide comfort in a time of chaos, such as those spoken by President Bush addressing our nation after 9/11: Continue Reading…

Mortifying Moments That Make Me Laugh

Funny Moments I can still hear the entire high school student body roaring with laughter. They pointed and laughed while I darted across the gymnasium floor looking for a safe haven to hide. Everything had been going so well up to that point. Lisa and I had spent hours working on our mummy costumes for the senior homecoming skit. We had our head masks on and our bodies were completely wrapped in bandages. As the Bangles song ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’ played, we danced across the gymnasium floor. Then, it started to feel a bit drafty. Before I knew it, all the bandages had fallen to the floor. I was left standing there in my underwear and a mask! This was one of those moments when your mother’s voice pops into your head, and you can hear her saying, ‘Honey, be sure to wear clean underwear.’ Thank goodness I had listened to her.
