“I was encouraged to apply for the Wallin scholarship from one of my Get-Ready counselors in high school. At the time, I didn’t really understand the impact that the organization would make on my college experience. My advisor displayed tireless effort in supporting me and fostering my success especially during my junior year when I was faced with many obstacles from financial to personal that could have impeded my chance of graduation. The belief in me that my advisor displayed was encouraging and without that relationship I am honestly not sure if I would have had the confidence to overcome those challenges.
