Anaya Iglesias, 18 – FUNDED
“A small action can go a long way — and always keep the end goal in mind!” says Anaya Iglesias, a 1,000 Dreams Fund Scholarship winner. It’s great advice — and there’s no doubt she’ll continue following it at University of Miami, where she’ll be studying nursing.
What is your professional dream?
I want to become a Registered Nurse and real estate owner.
How will you use the 1,000 Dreams Scholarship?
I’ll use this scholarship to fund expenses, such as books and meals, as well as transportation, such as flights home to family.
How is this scholarship helping you get closer to your dream?
It relieves some of the stress I have been under while planning for college. Furthermore, I am reassured that expenses I would have otherwise not been able to pay for are now able to be covered. I am so very grateful to 1DF for this.
What advice do you have for other young women who are wanting to pursue their dreams?
Take a leap of faith and research what is needed for your dream to come true. Whether that looks like applying for internships, scholarships, or asking a teacher to be a mentor, all of these can lead you in the right direction.
Have you had any setbacks? How did you move past them?
