Dear Emerge Scholarships,
Your scholarship has enabled me the life changing step to grow and learn, as a woman and a student. Traveling the world and having seen the need for medical staff, I hope to complete an RN certification. I look forward to serving those less fortunate. Thank you for your beautiful generosity, you are helping fulfill my dream. Most Sincerely, Whitney Magowan
