The FINAL scores of our five scholarship finalists have officially been tallied up!!
After seven weeks of rigorous application review by our esteemed judges and an intense week of voting where 3,431 votes were cast, a winner of the inaugural Desire To Inspire Scholarship has finally been selected!
Please join me in congratulating Anais Humes, a rising high school senior from Miami, FL, as the recipient of the 2019 Desire To Inspire Scholarship!!
I would like to thank every single person who helped to make this scholarship a reality! It’s crazy to think that this scholarship was originally an off-the-wall idea that I came up with a couple of years ago; an idea that ultimately came about as a direct result of my desire to help others attain a quality education after I had been blessed with a full-tuition scholarship to attend college at The University of Miami!
It has simply been incredible to bear witness to the creation and development of this scholarship, especially since I had no idea how it would all end up playing out. I’m humbled and honored that so many people decided to donate to the scholarship fund and that the judges took the time out of their already busy schedules to help review the applications that had been sent in. I am also amazed at how many scholars decided to apply for the scholarship and at how incredible many of the applicants are! I know that there are so many great things in store for them in the future!
Thank you again to everyone who played a part in making this scholarship a success! I’m looking forward to continuing to help young scholars reach and achieve their hopes and dreams! And a HUGE congratulations again to all five of the amazing finalists; you are all remarkably inspiring and are destined for greatness!!!
