2022 Unigo I Have A Dream Scholarship Winner Posted byUnigo Staff May 3, 2022January 11, 2023 Unigo is delighted to announce the winner of our I Have A Dream Scholarship! We had 1,011 applicants this year and we are thankful to everyone who applied. We read each and every entry and had so much fun learning about you all. So thank you all for participating. The essay asked “We want to know… what do you dream about? Whether it’s some bizarre dream you had last week, or your hopes for the future, share your dreams with us.” Hewan Worku from Arlington, TX and a student at Texas A&M University had the winning answer. She joins our list of Unigo scholarship winners and we couldn’t be prouder. Read Hewan’s winning essay below. Across the world, in this diverse and multifaceted global landscape, education is a tool for intersectional growth, community building, and global advancement. For the future of the U.S. and the world, I hope to supplement the effort in the inclusion of educational advancement for people of all backgrounds, ages, and wealth disparities. My town, Riverdale, Maryland currently houses many low-income immigrants and contains schools with graduation rates of less than 70%. In the future, I see this same town to be a utopia of opportunity and a district filled with successful, ethnic minorities that also receive their education from the privilege of living with people that have different languages, cultures, and traditions. Currently, majority-immigrant neighborhoods are considered to be a place of the disenfranchised and underserved, but I hope, in the future, these communities will be renowned for rising pioneers of global makers of change. I see future America providing equal opportunities for the minority and immigrant students as their counterparts in private schools or wealthier areas. I see America being a true melting pot of the world where everyone has the same opportunity to succeed. I see America, not only as a fruitful opportunity that is only attained by enduring racial and economic disadvantage but a place for all its citizens to grow in leadership and academics to change the communities they initially belonged to. I see the United States, the multicultural mosaic, to be a country that supports and guides each of its citizens, equally, to success.
