Achieving My Potential Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 1

At Ghanouni Teen & Young Adult Defense Firm, our mission is to ensure young generations achieve their full potential, regardless of past mistakes. As a criminal and juvenile defense law firm we believe that a mistake should not ruin your life. We are proud to announce our 2024 Achieving My Potential Scholarship to hear from students who went through the juvenile justice system or criminal justice system.

For this scholarship, we want to hear how students moved past their experience and how winning this scholarship would help them to achieve their full potential. Going through the juvenile or criminal justice system as a young adult can be scary, and the experience can fill peoples’ heads with doubt and confusion. We know that it can be challenging to leave that experience with positivity about one’s future. However, we believe people have a right to overcome their past and move forward.

Our firm understands that being accused as a teen or young adult has long-term implications that can carry on in their lifetime, and we would like to do what we can to help those trying to better themselves. Our $2,000 Achieving My Potential Scholarship is intended to shed light on stories of those who went through the juvenile justice system or criminal justice system and how they have turned their lives around, seeking a brighter future.
