An Interview with Stay Strong Scholar SB
You probably know that The Iron Maidens Raw Open, a women-only powerlifting meet slated for Saturday, June 2nd, is one of our most anticipated events of the year. 60 women, from CFSBK and beyond, will test their strength at Back Squat, Bench Press, and Deadlift. You won’t want to miss it.
For the 3rd year in a row, Iron Maidens lifters will raise funds for the Stay Strong Scholarship, which supports students at Bronx-based Grace Outreach. This year, our goal is to raise $40,000 to continue supporting these students. Right now we’re at $5,328 raised. Can you help us get there? Show some love by donating to your favorite CFSBK lifter(s) through the 2018 Crowdrise campaign here!
Today we’d like to bring you a brief interview with SB, a Stay Strong Scholar since September 2017. SB will graduate with an Associates degree in Human Services this May! She made her college’s President’s and Dean’s List in Spring and Fall 2017.
What has the Stay Strong Scholarship meant for you?
It may sound like a cliche, but the Stay Strong Scholarship means everything to me. Words cannot express the depth of my gratitude for this opportunity. This scholarship has been the key element that has thrust me closer to achieving my desire for higher education. It has been a consistent motivating factor, one semester after the next and continues to support and remind me to put my best effort forward against all odds.
Did you try to find other ways to pay for college before you received the SSS?
After months of being accepted to college and robustly seeking financial support from other scholarships like TheDream.us and CUNY BECAS, I was still not able to afford tuition. The Stay Strong Scholarship was my ray of hope and the reason achieving my college degree has become a reality.
How has your college impacted your life so far?
Being able to attend my college has given my life a sense of purpose. It has sustained my self-confidence and preserved my dignity and sense of self. It has brought me through times that were meant to break me and is something I am truly happy to be able to accomplish.
What are your goals for the future?
My goal for the future is to continue achieving higher education. This will create a solid foundation for my career and support my dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur and professional in the medical field.
Thanks, SB! Stay tuned to the blog in the coming weeks for more news from Stay Strong Scholars!
