Dream Career
I would love to receive a fifth grade teaching job at the school I went to. I would also love to go to school for my Master’s degree to further my education.

What does USC Upstate mean to you?
USC Upstate has helped me learn so much about elementary education. It means a lot to me, because even before taking my major classes, I was able to go into the elementary schools to get a firsthand look at what really goes on. I was also able to see different grade levels, which meant a lot because it helps me consider other grades besides fifth grade.

This scholarship has already impacted my life. It is helping me to achieve my goals. I am also telling others how great scholarships are and I hope through my actions, others will strive to do well.
