How ANY student--including YOU!--can win scholarships and earn free money for college!

On the first day of high school, Kristina Ellis's mom--a single, working mother who lost her husband to cancer--informed her that she could not financially support her after graduation. Kristina would need to find her own way to pay for college.

As an average student with less-than-impressive test scores, Kristina realized she would have to sell herself to scholarship committees if she wanted to stand out. That's when she devised the plan that led to her receiving over $500,000 in scholarships--enough to pay for her full education at a top- 20 university, all the way through her doctoral degree, and make her dreams come true.

How she made it happen--and how you can too!--is the focus of this book. In Confessions of a Scholarship Winner, Kristina shares not just her little-known secrets for scholarship success but her incredibly inspiring story.

Together, you'll explore how to:

  • Find the best scholarships for you
  • Uncover the secrets behind paying for college
  • Make a great impression in a scholarship interview
  • Overcome the personal obstacles that stand in your way
  • Craft a strategy that highlights your strengths, no matter your challenges or your financial status

  • You don't have to be a star athlete, a top student, or a recognized leader to live your dreams! Here are the tools you need to catch a vision for your future and make your dreams a reality!

    --Brenna Mader, Miss Tennessee USA
