Shawna's #WeBelongInCollege Story

Last updated February 28, 2021

Shawna grew up with a disability and found it difficult to stay focused while studying. She did not have a lot of friends or peers who knew what growing up with a disability was like. Luckily, Shawna attended a school with many success coaches, advisers, counselors, and understanding professors. Thanks to her advisers, she was able to find support and accommodations for her disability which helped her be more successful in school. 

Shawna was a recipient of a $1,000 #WeBelongInCollege Scholarship. Meet the other #WeBelongInCollege Scholarship Winners!
