The only way to really to get the genuine experience I’m talking about it to take the first step and APPLY. This time last year I was at a major crossroad in trying to make a decision about my future. I was still waiting on the acceptance from Sport Changes Life and debating on accepting an opportunity to go to law school. I had my sights set on my law degree, until I researched Sport Changes Life and all the benefits that a Victory Scholarship offers.
I was not fully sold on law school because of the time and financial commitment it entails. The outcome would certainly be worth it, but it was something I had to convince myself to jump into. Sport Changes Life was a no brainer. To be able to travel outside of the United States as a 23 year old, help young people, continue to play basketball, and get my Masters degree was not something I needed persuasion with.
Those are all things that people from the outside are able to see and inform the world about. However, the Victory Scholar is the only one who can relay the inside details that surface level discussion can’t cover. The relationships with other scholars, classmates, teammates, coaches, community members, college staff, and young people are what make the experience what it is. The only way to really to get the genuine experience I’m talking about it to take the first step and APPLY. The underlying theme of most of my blogs are the people that make Ireland what it is and how fortunate for Americans that Sport Changes Life is located here. Words cannot justify the uniqueness and overwhelmingly positive experience that a Victory Scholar is blessed with.
