Renee's #WeBelongInCollege Story

Last updated February 28, 2021

The first time Renee went to college, she had no clue what she wanted to study and really didn’t have an interest in her classes. She failed semester after semester, until she was put on academic probation. She thought she would never return to school, but soon realized all her career goals required college.

After figuring out what she wanted to study, utilizing campus resources, and checking in with professors, Renee was able to transfer to a university and do well in her classes. She doesn’t want students to feel like their performance is dictated by their past, and encourages others to use the resources on their campuses to get the help that they need. 

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