We are pleased to announce the winner of our 2013 Share Your Passion Scholarship – Michael Benjamin. We were fortunate to receive many great entries from passionate young students who genuinely wish to use their passions in order to help others; therefore, choosing a winner was not an easy task. Nonetheless, after reviewing all the entries, we decided that the clear winner was Michael.
Michael entered a beautifully written essay in which he talks about his passion for running. He talks about the great impact running has had on his life and how running has presented him with many opportunities for a better life. Michael describes how running helped him escape certain negative paths that many young people around him were taking; in essence, it allowed him to stay out of trouble. Running also motivated Michael to excel in school, because it allowed him to see the benefits of hard work and determination, leading him to decide to use that same approach in his education. Although Michael does not necessarily want to pursue running as a career, he hopes to use his passion to motivate others to be health conscious and to follow their own passions. We are thrilled to be able to acknowledge Michael’s hard work and passion. We know Michael will be successful in whatever path he chooses. Please take a moment to read Michael’s essay and share it with others.
