I'm a Paleo foodie, coffee connoisseur, and writer who is passionate about helping people achieve their potential. I divide my time between crafting written word, adventuring with friends, planning a wedding with my fiancee, and exploring San Antonio with my Husky mix, Jackie. I love hearing from readers, so please send an email my direction!


It just takes a handshake, a signature on a form, or slamming of the breaks. A split second, that’s all the time necessary to change our lives.

Sometimes, the change is positive: a new job, the birth of a child, or beginning college.

Maybe it was the “ah-hah!” moment when you discovered your life calling.  

At other times, our life takes a drastic turn at a devastating event: illness, injury, unemployment, or the loss of a loved one.

These moments shape our lives.

And we want to hear about yours.

At CollegePlus, we want to hear about your life changing experience, and offer you the opportunity to embark on another life changing journey.

All as a part of the second annual CollegePlus summer scholarship essay contest!

Our theme for the 2013 scholarship contest is “One Thing.” The one thing that made a huge impact in your life.

Whether it was a mission trip, a conversation with your mom, an internship, or an injury or illness, we want to hear about the one experience that made a profound difference in your life!

And then we want to help you take the next life-changing step by giving you a full-ride scholarship.

The grand prize is a full-ride college scholarship. But that’s not all. There are a few large prizes (like iPads and smaller scholarships) and everyone not currently enrolled in CollegePlus who submits an essay will automatically receive a $350 CollegePlus scholarship!


So, what are you waiting for? Visit the CollegePlus Summer Scholarship website for more details and get your keyboard clicking! Since there are iPads that will go to the person with the most “audience votes,” the sooner you get your essay in the sooner you can start racking up the votes!
