Writing your story for scholarships is scary! I remember not knowing what to say and how to say it. The best thing I can tell you, is to write from the bottom of your heart. Tell your story the way you want to tell them. Always have someone look over your essay. They can give you a new perspective and help fix things that are unclear. Most importantly, make sure you take the time to reflect on your experiences. It will make the writing process so much easier! Think about all the things you have done and how they have impacted your life or others.
Ps. The Scholarship Night went super well! I hope I motivated the students!
