My name is Cristina Hannah and I’ve been a military spouse for four years. It’s hard when he’s not here because I have a lot of responsibilities with him not being here. But we get through it and we make it work. Earning my degree with Southern New Hampshire University, I will have the ability to help others and state the prime example to my husband and my children that anything is possible and no dream is too big or too small to follow. My goal is to become an advocate for children and families. I want to help families overcome their challenging rough patches that I myself, have endured. I applied for the scholarship to further my education So that I can get a head start on my passion, which is to help people. Operation Homefront’s partnership with Southern New Hampshire University lets me know that there is a support system out there for us. Please join me in congratulating , Cristina Hannah. Education is important because it will allow me to pursue what I want to do in life and open up many doors for me.
