“There hasn’t been a day where I haven’t thought about becoming an architect. It will take a large amount of dedication, but I will do whatever it takes to achieve my ambitions.”
My name is Shanelle Brown and I am a high school senior from Fairhope High School in Fairhope, Alabama. I am the class president of my senior class, vice president of my school’s student government association, a member of National Honor Society, and a member of my school’s marching and concert band. I am honored to be receiving this scholarship and I am thrilled to be using this scholarship to help my future education into architecture. As an architect, I would like to design schools for less fortunate children in urban areas, auditoriums for fine art programs that have nowhere to display their art, facilities for teenagers who suffer from depression and other disorders, and so many other ideas that could benefit the future of our upcoming generations. There hasn’t been a day where I haven’t thought about becoming an architect. It will take a large amount of dedication, but I will do whatever it takes to achieve my ambitions.
