I want to thank you for your incredible generosity. It is difficult to express just how much your kindness means to me. Your donation has not only helped financially, but the entire scholarship experience you provide has changed the way in which myself and my family see me as a person.
It is a tremendous honor that you chose me for the scholarship. With that honor came a sense of esteem and self-worth that is indeed priceless. It has been a long time since I have felt this good about my life and my plan. As you may recall, I have struggles in the past with alcohol which had led to multiple unfortunate situations that were destructive to me and my family. I am pleased to say that I am sober and doing what I can to repair the damage I have done to the relationships in my life that suffered due to an abundant amount of unfortunate decisions on my part.
Kristi’s Big Night Out was an unbelievable opportunity to show my family and friends that I am working hard to become a better person, and standing in front of them to receive a scholarship was one of the greater moments in my life.
Every day is a chance to make life better. When I applied for the scholarship I had no idea how greatly it would impact my life and the lives of the people that are closest to me. I can’t thank you enough for your confidence in me and seeing something in my application that you wanted to invest in.
