2012 - 2013 WyzAnt Scholarship Entry
Jennifer from Charlotte, NC

Q: How will you use your education to make an impact on others?

A: I grew up in an extremely religious home where women were encouraged to refuse an education and degree and have children and be homemakers. I left when I was 20 and have spent two years rounding out my education and working to save money so I can go to college. My parents refuse to support me or offer any assistance, including just signing my FAFSA.

If I were to finish college and get a degree, I would first help my 6 younger siblings (specifically the two girls) to also find a way out and get on their feet and go to school.

Then, I would love to create a safe-house where children of religious homeschooling families can come to improve their lives and future and have hope.

1. That is a great idea about the safe-house.

Fundamentalism sucks!
