This scholarship has helped me more than just financially. This scholarship encouraged me in many ways and it has been great knowing that there is a community of people out there encouraging and motivating girls to follow their dreams. So along with the financial help, I would like to say thank you to Girls With Wings for all the encouragement. Thanks for believing in me!
Learning how to fly these past few months has been really great. I would not take back the time I've spent flying for anything! Even though it has been fun, it has been challenging at the same time. I’ve learned that it’s not always easy, but the moment that something finally makes sense or the moment you land the plane on your own makes all the challenges and the hard work worth it. Flying has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I just finished my night cross country, which was one of my favorite flights because of the sunset and the lights. I am getting ready for my solo cross country and hoping to get my license within the next month!
I think that any girl dreaming of becoming a pilot should go for it! It is an amazing experience. I would love to stay involved with Girls With Wings to encourage girls to go follow their dreams. Becoming a part of this community has been a great experience for me, and my intent is to stay involved and encourage other girls become involved. Thank you again to Girls With Wings for encouraging not only me, but girls everywhere. It’s great to see the difference this organization has made and will continue to make!
