Thank you to everyone who submitted an application for our “Your Time” scholarship. We are pleased to announce Ofonime Emah of Montgomery College as the winner of this year’s scholarship. Ofonime is working to earn an Associate’s Degree in Life Science to begin her path of eventually becoming a pedodontist, a pediatric dentist.
Her ultimate goal is to provide free oral health care to less fortunate children in Africa, her homeland. Having previously worked with law firms, Ofonime was touched after working with children with an array of disabilities and knew she wanted to contribute in some way. That is what led her to a huge career change.
“We admire her passion and courage, and we are excited to help Ofonime achieve her goals by earning her degree,” said Jon Payne, editor of The Career Project.
Our “Your Time” Scholarship is an annual award, so please consider applying next year. We look forward to next year’s applications and hearing about Ofonime’s amazing journey!
