Oz Moving & Storage Scholarship 2015
Oz Moving & Storage is proud to announce the winner of the Oz Moving scholarship contest: Alyssa Snyder, from Park City, Utah!
Alyssa's entry detailed her tough experience entering a new school at the age of 14, when she was uprooted from a school system she had spent the rest of her life in. "I struggled with this transition for some time. I had a difficult time getting to know people and making friends to begin with, and starting over in a place that was completely new was a nightmare... I often felt alone and out of place." Alyssa's realization and determination to overcome her anxiety was inspiring. "I realized that I was the only one who could change my situation," she said. That turned into a great new group of friends and a sense of comfort in her old surroundings. Allyssa summed it up herself: "It is more than possible to create new bonds and change the way you react to your new experiences. People are more open and kind than one might expect. All you have to do is open yourself up to new experiences and new people." She now attends Montana State University.
Congratulations Alyssa! We will be in touch shortly to discuss your scholarship.
