Meet our Scholars: Patricia

Patricia, PA - Media Arts

Patricia is a JRF Scholar in Pennsylvania working on her Bachelor's of Arts in Media Arts. She has an impressive 4.0 GPA and has been working full-time as the sole financial provider for her family! Patricia has been a graphic designer for nearly two decades, but she needs to further her education to keep up with the recent changes in the graphic design industry. Patricia is hoping to increase her earning potential to be able to better provide for her husband and their two children.

Patricia spends her limited free time volunteering with Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts by teaching participants about graphic design, computer coding, and leadership development. She is almost done with her Bachelor's degree and is excited to get into her new career and be able to focus more of her time on her family and volunteering!

She is so grateful for her scholarship from JRF and says, "As an older, non-traditional college student, scholarship opportunities are few and far between. I greatly appreciate the opportunity that the Jeannette Rankin Scholarship has provided me."
