This blog was originally featured on Get Schooled Detroit and features Subria Burkhalter, a student at Detroit School of Arts High School.
Q. How did you first learn about Get Schooled?
A. I first learned about Get Schooled from my high school guidance counselor, Ms. May last year during my junior year of high school. She had a school assembly to introduce and engage students in Get Schooled. I am extremely grateful that she took time out of her busy schedule to arrange this brilliant program for her students. She is an example of an adult that loves her job and that is extremely passionate in helping her students achieve goals and dreams.
Q. Describe your experience with Get Schooled.
A. My experience with Get Schooled has truly been a blessing from the help of the text hotline, scholarships page, and support articles that educate about resume building, interview skills, college essay writing, scholarship searching, etc... I have had so many amazing opportunities with Get Schooled from Michelle Obama's Becoming Tour to Pistons Games. Get Schooled has inspired and educated me with information that will last a lifetime.
Q. What do you like the most and what would you change about GS?
A. What I absolutely love the most about Get Schooled are the interactive articles that teach me about College, FAFSA, Resume building etc... Especially the fact that I can be a part of the Get Schooled family by being a Student Ambassador and helping students at my high school achieve greatness on their journey to college. What I would change about Get Schooled is the layout of the home page and organize it so that students can find resources easier such as the scholarships page, financial aid calculator, etc... A lot of students at my high school struggle looking for those pages on the website.
Q. Which college will you attend and what do you plan to study?
A. I am still deciding on a College. I plan to study Film/TV and minor in Project Management.
Q. What did you enjoy most about GS?
A. What I enjoy most about Get Schooled are the supportive articles and scholarships opportunity page.
Q. What do you plan to do with your scholarship?
A. What I plan to do with the scholarship is buy a laptop for college and also use for expenses on college books.
Q. How do you feel to be chosen as the winner?
A. I am truly grateful and honored to have been chosen for the Detroit College Scholarship. I am thankful for the generous support from Get Schooled on supporting me in making my dreams come true.
