Blessons Scholarships for Women:
Life will only change when you become more committed to your dreams than you are to your comfort zone. We don't want to inspire others by being perfect. We want to inspire women by how we deal with our imperfections as we face challenging life lessons. Our organization is Blessons Scholarships for Women. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization (Tax ID #81-332-6940). We use the word, "BLESSONS". A blesson is what happens when you see the blessing in the lesson that your challenging life lesson(s) has taught you.
We all have a story. We all have our own challenging life lessons. We all have our own issues and fears. Not everyone has the emotional or financial support from their family when it comes to finishing their higher education. Due to facing many obstacles in life, many women especially, have had to put their higher education on hold due to cancer, mental health, abuse or who are first generation immigrants and must assist in the family's income to survive. These women learn how to survive such challenging life lessons on their own because that's all they can be, is STRONG. Not for just themselves, but for the people that depend on them financially as well. This had become a growing issue in our communities across the country and leaves women with an unfortunate decision of not finishing college because it is no longer a priority. College can't be a priority because SURVIVING is. We can all make a difference by providing educational assistance, including scholarships. Educate a woman and she will change the world.
