It's true that we are shaped by our experiences growing up. We are particularly affected by those who helped raise us, whether that be a parent, an older sibling, a grandparent, a teacher, or a coach. We are very much who we are today because of the people who raised, educated, or motivated us to be the person we have grown into. Sometimes the experiences that put us on the right path happen early in life, but sometimes it takes the right person to help us find our way. Regardless, it takes more than just our own will and motivation to end up on the path to success.
For this scholarship, Jan Dils Attorneys at Law wants to help you recognize the person that put you on your path to success. Please write about the person or people who helped you start your journey down the right road. Did they do it through example? Through encouragement? Through a lesson? How did you finally end up on your path? Our law firm wants to hear what your goals in life are and who helped you get started achieving them.
