This program could give me the skills needed to excel in my company, jumpstart my career, and could be something to take with me for the rest of my life.
[Being] awarded this scholarship is recognition that I can accomplish bigger things and succeed further. This scholarship fulfills my academic goals and helps build my future character.
I wanted to learn something new to broaden my knowledge and experience. I now attend ABC's Electrical apprentice program. The scholarship will help me accomplish my goal of becoming a Journeyman Electrician.
This scholarship would help me because I work hard but living in Hawaii, sometimes no matter how hard you work, it's not enough. I am going to school to become a Journeyman so one day, my family and I can work hard and have enough.
