September 2015 Course Hero Scholarship Winner

Find out more about the September 2015 Course Hero Scholarship winner, how she studies hard, and how you can apply for money to pay for college, too!

We’re excited to announce our very first monthly scholarship winner! Veronica Fernandez graduated from Queen Creek High School a year early in 2015 and is looking forward to attending Chandler-Gilbert Community College this spring.

Veronica FHere’s her winning response to our September scholarship question, “How will you study smarter this year?”

Studying smarter for me is more than just going over the curriculum religiously. It’s about truly grasping the concepts and finding a way to connect what I am learning to my everyday life. In doing this, I will not only study harder, but I will teach others around me as well.

After taking a semester off, Veronica will attend school in the spring to become a dental hygienist. She was born in Tennessee, spent some time in Texas, and has been living in Arizona for the past 9 years — where she’s loving it.

We got a chance to ask Veronica about winning the award, and she said, “This scholarship will help me so much in college! Going to school to be a dental hygienist will be rewarding and exciting.”

Best of luck, Veronica! Congratulations.
