Steve HansonFall Scholarship, October 2013
Steve Hanson (William Mitchell College of Law - Moorhead, MN)
What motivates a student with a disability from a lower socio-economic, single-parent family to conceive and then pursue a goal of becoming a public defender who would represent the legal rights of society's most vulnerable people, those who suffer discrimination because of race, color, poverty, or handicap? I personally made such a decision that was motivated by my collective life experiences. My education made me aware of the many challenges that disadvantaged people face. Consequently, during high school, I decided to use my knowledge to help others in my community who also had life challenges. I volunteered for over 140 hours at various local agencies where the clients faced various life issues that ranged from academic failure and physical and mental disabilities to poverty and limited English. Initially, the purpose of my community service was simple: helping people who needed assistance with life challenges. However, as I continued to serve those in need, I also learned by listening to their stories about their poverty, their disabilities and their academic failure in schools. Gradually, I realized that my volunteering had evolved into a deeper understanding of the challenges that disadvantaged and underrepresented people face. I resolved to advocate on their behalf.
 

Qian YangSpring Scholarship, March 2013
Qian Yang (USC - Los Angeles, CA)
I am currently a senior student of International Studies in Peking University in P. R. China. Three months later, I will be in U. S for my graduate study. During my undergraduate years, I edited school magazines, led social practice teams and did academic work in whichever international topics I like. Apart from campus work, I like hiking, climbing, badminton and so on. I also travel a lot. I have just been back from Ghana, Africa, and I plan to go to South East Asia with my friends weeks later. We don't have much money, but we can always figure out some cheap ways to fulfill our journey. For me, life is also a journey, which can be both melancholy and marvelous. I may never be able to know what is in store for me in the next turn. Whereas, I can still enjoy the melody as long as I know the road is under the feet. May be that's part of the reason why I like travelling. I want to express my sincere thanks to Hotelscheap. When I pushed the key to submit my scholarship application form, I thought chances were small for me to win the scholarship, considering my inexperience and the difference in nationality. "Just do it." That was my attitude when writing the travelling guidance article for the application. Thank Hotelscheap, as it shows me how generous Uncle Sam can be, and facilitates my enthusiasm to study there.
 

Chevon PatrickFall Scholarship, October 2012
Chevon Patrick (University of Denver - Denver, CO)
Chevon is a mother of three, and is attending the University of Denver, majoring in social work. Chevon was diagnosed with life threatening cancer in early 2012. It was after that experience that Chevon realized how much life's simple things meant to her. Family, friends, the basic joys of life no longer were taken for granted. Chevon has made it a life goal to take her experience and help others, as she said, "Passing on the power of all these assets is my goal. To encourage another being to want to change and/or help someone else in despair would mean the world to me. I believe that this is one of my purposes in life and my goal".
