you all know who i am and some of you respect me, I think. but if you do know me, you know i am an American who is about to finish secondary school and go on to university and y’all know american education is EXPENSIVE. i definitely need your help with this contest so i don’t wind up in debt!
this contest is called Kid! You’ll Move Mountains and its a scholarship competition for $10,000 which i REALLY need or otherwise I will not be able to attend university in my favorite city of texas. this competition is meant for students who work towards change in a sector (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and my entry is in the Science category, which i’ll talk about later
i plan to major in International Relations and Global Studies with an emphasis in science, technology, and the environment with a minor in Middle Eastern Studies because i definitely plan to become the next kurdish politician to actually be the one to remediate the entire Middle East. and if you follow this blog, you should care about the Middle East too.
one of the things i care a lot about is the environment and food safety/security and tackling obesity in this country because it affects so many lives and these monocultures (which are farms planting the same crop that’s been genetically altered thousands of times) are not good for our health or our environment. I have taken the initiative with the help of my environmental science teacher to help my peers and children across the city to learn about how a plant grows and how it changes into the food we eat. i regularly go visit several elementary schools to help them with their gardens and planting them and taking care of them, etc. which is more of a social issue but this concerns the world so it’s a science!!
the university I want to go to has a dorm price of 10,000$ or more and this money could REALLY help me out with that.
so if you could be a doll and VOTE for me to win/become a semi finalist.
first thing: please excuse the selfie i took it about 10 minutes before this was due. please go to THIS WEBSITE, create an account (you could use a 10 minute email account for this) and VOTE FOR ME by searching my name “Kany” in the search bar at the bottom of the website!!!!!!!!! I will love y’all to the end of time. PLEASE HELP ME
