Education has always been an important aspect of my life. Although there have been trials and tribulations, I have surmounted them through the constant help of the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund. My story is not one of a privileged life not wanting or wishing for anything. Instead it is a dream, a dream to be able to fulfill my destiny, and I most confessed that the Linda Lorelle Foundation saw beyond my potential and believe in my dreams and gave me a chance in life in order for me to fulfill my destiny.  I am beyond grateful for the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund because they tremendously helped in molding and shaping the young women I am today.

Despite all my circumstances, I am determined, hard working and I did not allow my circumstance to define who I am or who I wanted to become. The Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund saw beyond my circumstance and showed me that I am stronger then I look and that I can accomplish all that I wish to accomplish in this life, because the sky is my “Only” limit. The Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund has definitely lightened my financial burden which allowed me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. 


I am more then grateful for the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund's generosity because it has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.  I hope that one day I will be able to help students achieve their goal just as they have helped me. I look forward to being able to give back to the foundation once I begin my career as a Natural Gas engineer. I am very appreciative for the help, confidence and willingness that the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund has given me in order for me to achieve my goals.
