volunteer your way through school
Letter from Trisha
Before anything I would like to say thank you for taking the time to learn about the #MyInspiration Higher Learning Fund. I know what it is like to want to achieve greatness. I also know the sacrifice that comes with fulfilling dreams. When you read the #MyInspiration HLF Values, you will see one crucial element that needs to be highlighted. We here at the #MyInspiration HLF believe in the overachiever that is under appreciated.
I truly respect any student who cares enough about their education to not let outside factors affect their success. Throughout my academic career, I noticed that there is a large group of underdogs who have passion but no direction and too many barriers to overcome. The #MyInspiration HLF would like to take the time to give hope to those students. My team is determined to find those hidden gems and expose them to a new outlook. This outlook is one of having faith and giving those in need a second chance.
I look at my life and the one important message that I would tell students is that I know what it feels like to need a second chance. I was lucky enough to be given a third, fourth and fifth chance to change my life for the better. I know what is feels like to be constantly defeated and feel empty. That feeling took me to a dark place. I was blessed to find purpose before I hit my rock bottom. I managed to channel that feeling of defeat into a positive change. And that is the foundation that the #MyInspiration Higher Learning Fund lives by.
I want students to know that my team is committed to uniting with you and working with you to build a better tomorrow. It took a few years of serving to save up enough of my tips for 5 scholarships. I will say that is the beginning of a great initiative that will change lives for many Manitobans to come. Thank you for supporting my effort to take any stereotype that got in the way of a student’s dream and helping them overcome it.
