It was the night before my college graduation and I had decorated my cap to read “The Best Is Yet To Come”. I believed that no matter what was next in my life, the adventure would help me grow into a strong woman! As I sat back and admired how well it came out I picked up my phone and scrolled through some emails. I saw one labeled Victory Scholar Program. My heart stopped and I immediately clicked on it. The words “I am delighted to inform you that…” were all I had to read before I broke out into tears of joy!
When I first heard about Sport Changes Life I thought it too perfect to be true. A program that provided the opportunity to further my education, play the game that I love, and mentor/coach the youth in the community was an all-inclusive package that I could only dream of. The next couple months led to many interview sessions and I found myself on the edge of my seat each day waiting to find out my results. I knew that this program embodied all that I believed in, but I never thought I would be given the honor of becoming a Victory Scholar. This experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will not only educate me but give me the chance to help others.
I would like to thank Sport Changes Life, Rory Mcllroy, and the Rory Foundation for sponsoring my journey. I am blessed to be a Victory Scholar and cannot wait to make a difference here in Ireland. Also, a huge thank you to my family and friends back home. You have and always will be my biggest support group. I hope you enjoy coming on this journey with me as I become a role model and raise the aspirations of those around me!
The Best is Yet to Come!
