Behind the Scholarship

Single mothers face a tough challenge in having to make a better life for two. I was raised by a mother in this position, who often sacrificed and made decisions with my best interest in mind. Now, I'd like to try and help someone else who is trying to improve her life and that / those of her child(ren) by pursuing higher education.
