Hannah’s independence and confidence in herself came through clearly in her application. She has worked steadily since the age of 16 while, at the same time, challenging herself to excel at school. This determination took her from struggling academically to the High Honor Roll in her Senior Year. Despite her busy schedule, Hannah also contributed to her community as President of her Temple Youth Group, leader of the BRITE Club at Parsippany High School and a volunteer at her Hebrew school.
Never one to lose momentum, Hannah got a jump start on her college career with courses at Richard Stockton College in Galloway, NJ this Summer. She plans to continue her studies there with a double major in Psychology and Social Work. Her ultimate career goal is to become a counselor in order to help others.
In her essay, Hannah says “I will make a path of my own choosing and walk down it alone.” and there is no doubt that Hannah Feldman will excel at whatever she puts her mind to. Jackie says “This scholarship is my vote of confidence in Hannah. Every great success story starts with the thought that you CAN get what you want, and Hannah has never let go of that thought when life got hard.”
