Meet Brenda. She's moving from Las Vegas to Virginia.
I've been here my whole life. I got married 3 years ago, and ever since we got married we've wanted to have a change because he's been living here for the longest time. We wanted to go all the way to the other side of the country. I've never been there. He left two months ago, so I'm just ready to leave. My plan was to go to school here, but the opportunity arrived that we could move over there. So why start school here if I wasn't going to be able to finish it? So I postponed it for when I move over there. So yeah, that's the plan!
She dreams of becoming a licensed esthetician.
My biggest plans are that I want to move over there with my husband to be with them. I just want to start fresh. I've been thinking about going to esthetics school for the longest time. I'm getting ready to be 23 and I need to do something already. Once I move over there, it's going to be a new state, new people, new everything. I think it's the right opportunity, the right time to start fresh in another place. I think I'm ready for the change and to do something with my life.
She's starting a new adventure alongside her husband of 3 years.
My husband is very supportive. Whatever I want to do he's there for me and says just go for it. I've been looking not only at the esthetics program, but I've been looking to see what is it that I really want to do? And he tells me, too, "I think this is a perfect fit for you." I'm like, "Ok I think so too!" It's both of us. It's like, "Ok, I think I'll go for this. He's very supportive so I know that. And I know it's going to be long hours between working and going to the school, but he says that he's there for me. If he's there for me, I can do this. I'm ready for that.
She doesn't realize she's the scholarship recipient.
I just have one last thing and I'll let you go. Um... You are the winner of a $2,500 scholarship!
Oh my gosh, I'm so excited! Thank you so much, I'm so excited, I can't wait to go and start school. Oh my gosh, that's so cool! I'm all excited, my hands are so nervous! I can't wait to call my husband. He's going to be screaming. [Laughs]
Brenda will get a $2,500 scholarship to go to esthetics school.
Thank you so much. I'm going to do my best to, you know, do the best I can! I'm so thankful. Thank you so, so much. I just want to thank everybody - I know there's a lot of people working behind you and thank everybody that is supporting me for this money. Just let them know that I am very thankful, and my husband is too! I'm going to do the best I can. I'm ready to go to the new state, start fresh, start a new school, and I'm gonna be good. Thank you so, so much.
