"I plan to use [my] degree to enter the Peace Corps and help areas in need. Once my term in the Peace Corps is over, I will be pursuing a MBA with a focus in Sustainable Business. I will then be attending law school to study in environmental law. I plan to help businesses become more environmentally friendly so that the environment can stay clean while allowing industries to grow.

This scholarship will help pay for my undergraduate degree. It will allow me to purchase the text material needed for my courses, ensuring that I have the materials needed to both keep up my grades and learn subjects that will help my career in the future."
