As the newest member of the Marketing team at Partners, I was thrilled to be a part of the special tradition of the Partners Annual Scholarship. Since it started, Partners has granted over $100,000 in scholarships, and now I would be a part of it. With almost 600 applicants this year, my team and I read through inspiring essay topics including trauma, selflessness, and controversies. It was no easy feat, but some written content were so remarkable, we continued to read through every essay all day and night. I was deeply moved by how accomplished and hard-working our young Members are, especially the few we selected to share with each other in our team meeting. Their impressive achievements and community involvements were so humbling yet also motivating as we shared how it touched our hearts. I feel encouraged for our future with minds and hearts like these, and I feel even more proud that it’s our members.
I am excited to be a part of something very important to Partners. Small gestures can make the biggest impact, and it has been the most gratifying to contribute to students pursuing their academic achievements.
Stay tuned! We will be announcing the winners in a few weeks.
