Sheena – My Scholarship Story

Sheena – My Scholarship Story


[♫] My name is Sheena Kapila. I received the Mutual of Enumclaw scholarship
and I am studying graphic design and I’m here at Green River getting my AA. I’m actually a high school student, so I’m
doing the Running Start program here. So I’m getting my general–the AA degree,
and then I’m gonna transfer to a university. The scholarship has really helped me explore,
because being a high school student, there’s a lot of requirements
while you’re doing the running start program that you have to complete at Green River. And there’s that part of you
that you’re at a college environment and you want to explore what you love. And having that scholarship, I have the support
to explore different artistic classes that Green River offers, that–I’m in a really
lucky position to be in. That I received this scholarship, it means
a lot to me, because when you’re doing a career that has anything related to the arts, of
course there’s a lot of expenses and materials and software, and I never wanted that
to be an obstacle for me to continue creating things that I love. And I received this scholarship and it doesn’t
just allow me to, you know, get materials that I need, without a financial burden, but
also continuing to take other classes, extra classes, without tuition
and other fees to come in the way. I can take the classes I need for high school,
but also take classes in graphic design and web design here at Green River
without extra fees. Thank you so much for allowing a student who’s
in high school to have such a wonderful college experience and explore everything in its entirety. Taking that stress away from a student is
something that I will always be grateful for. [♫]
