Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
A scholarship would help me obtain my ultimate goal of being able to impact someone's birthing experience, something that will bring me great pride. I’ve always been someone to push myself and being able to without the financial stress would take that tremendous weight off of my shoulders. My education will be funded through scholarships given directly from Otterbein University, and loans taken on by my parents and I. I myself have to take on loans in order to get through school and pursue my passions. In total I will have to take about $14,000 in loans with the school paying about $32,000 of my cost of attendance. Thankfully my cost of attendance includes things like books and supplies but it adds to debt that I will have to carry. I will be able to more seamlessly transition into midwifery school after getting a bachelor's degree. Without the financial stress I will be able to continue one of my passions, which is community service.
