Vision. Goals. Action! Scholarship Awarded to Two Winners

Congratulations to the two winners of Atlanta Habitat’s first Vision. Goals. Action! (VGA) Scholarship Awards ceremony of 2018!

Atlanta Habitat homeowner of 11 years, Moneqi D., has dreams of impacting her community and great plans for the scholarship she received. In addition to working as a data report analyst for the City of Atlanta, Moneqi will graduate with a master’s’ degree in Business Administration from American Intercontinental University this spring. Moneqi’s ultimate dream is to use her knowledge to instill important values such as integrity and perseverance in her children and advise and educate those looking to enter the workforce. Moneqi plans to use the scholarship of $2,500 to help relieve some of her school debt and focus on a well-rounded college experience.

Precious O., the youngest child of a 19-year Atlanta Habitat homeowner, graduated from the University of Notre Dame and received her master’s degree in Political Science and Administration of Justice. She was recently accepted to Mercer University’s law school while also serving as a mentor in Metro Atlanta’s Big Brother, Big Sister program. The $1,500 VGA Scholarship will help Precious come closer to her dream of becoming a lawyer.

VGA gives Atlanta Habitat homeowners resources to go beyond the build and reach higher goals. More than 30% of Atlanta Habitat homeowners graduate from college. This year’s Vision. Goals. Action! scholarship winners were selected among 10 other candidates, all of whom submitted a formal application, purpose statement and letter of recommendation.
