How to utilize a weakness as a strength when writing an essay: JR’s Daily Two-Minute Financial Aid Tip

This is episode 31 and today we are talking about How to utilize a weakness as a strength in your essays

While I was doing “student on campus” interviews this week, I met an interesting person named Kaylee, who made the most out of what life have given her to win a scholarship.  

Interview with Kaylee Bennett

We all have issues, and things that have made life harder than it is for others. But we cant sit on our hands and let those things stop us from making a better life for ourselves. Its important to know that when writing scholarship essays, you need to make the most of what you have to get where you want to be. You need to know you can take a negative, and the experience it gave you, and turn it into a postive. If you can do this right, you too can win scholarships just like Kaylee.
