Getting rejected hurts, but it doesn't define you.
Nobody likes to fall down, but it happens to all of us, all the time. In the moment, it can be difficult to see the lessons you can learn from getting rejected, but appreciating the experience and using it as a way to redirect your efforts is the most critical way to grow.
With the right mentality, rejection is a stepping stone on the way to bigger and better things.
This scholarship is for anyone who has experienced rejection, and used it as redirection.
Please share a time where rejection was redirection. How did a rejection lead you to something bigger and better?
