Despite this, women are also 44% more likely than men to refuse pursuing their bachelors degree because of the inability to afford it. 

This scholarship aims to aid female students who are pursuing higher education at a Baptist college which will help them thrive and witness through career opportunities across the world.

I am currently studying Elementary Education with an emphasis in Spanish at Dallas Baptist University. Growing up, the teachers in my life consistently encouraged me to do my best so that I can achieve my best. They helped me grow to be the person I am today. They taught me academics and how to serve and love others well. The Lord gave me a passion to serve children in this way as well. I gained a love for Spanish after participating in two one-week mission trips to the Dominican Republic. I also had the opportunity to return there to serve as an intern this past summer of 2022. The end goal of my studies is to gain a degree and certification to teach in a school. I hope to be a light to the children and parents that I come into contact with. I have also felt the call to overseas missions. A teaching degree will assist my entry into closed countries and interaction with the natives. Since attending DBU, I have learned much in my courses. I have learned content and techniques so that I can be the best teacher I can be. Because of family circumstances, I am paying for school myself. When I was in high school, my father was diagnosed with a liver disease which caused him to leave his job. My sister recently received a kidney transplant in January of 2022 as well. Therefore, most of our income goes to paying hospital bills and other necessary daily needs. This scholarship would greatly assist in my studies. I would be able to focus more on my academics and attain a degree instead of worrying about how I will pay for the next semester. Thank you for the opportunity to complete this application!
