My name is Tori Owens and I am a freshman at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia. I am majoring in Public Relations and I am also on the golf team at KSU. In my free time I love to cook, and I also love spending time with my dog C.J. This scholarship will help me achieve one of my biggest educational goals and that is to have a bachelor’s degree by the time I am 20 years old.
Taking many dual enrollment classes in high school, it put me almost two years ahead of my fellow collegiate acquaintances that are my age. This scholarship will ease some of my stress of not having to worry about different payment methods my family and I must acquire.
I believe technology is the number one influencer in how our future will be shaped, from a personal and macro standpoint. I believe our world will be a lot more technologically advanced in the next decade because of everything being discovered in this time frame.
One of my favorite organizations is habitat for humanity. It is a great organization for helping people build homes and/or communities. I think it is a great cause to help contribute to because they are not asking you for money but rather just asking to lend a helping hand. In the future, I would like to help contribute my time to this organization because I would like to improve someone’s home and quality of life.
