2018 Scholarship Recipient - O. Smith

Olivia Smith
Hampstead, North Carolina
Member Organization: Forms and Supply Inc. 

My name is Olivia Smith and I am from Hampstead, North Carolina. I recently graduated from Topsail High School, where I played soccer and ran indoor track. I was also a member of several school clubs including Ecology club, S.T.A.N.D club, and A Safe Place.

In my senior year of high school, I founded my own club, Pirates Against Cancer, with the mission of supporting my community members who were diagnosed with cancer. In the fall I will be attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to study nursing. After obtaining my Bachelor of Nursing I plan to go to graduate school to become a certified nursing midwife.

I feel so lucky to have been selected as a recipient of the IOPFDA Scholarship. Receiving this scholarship has helped ease my financial burden, and now allows me to focus more on my studies and career goals. Thank you again IOPFDA for your generosity in granting me this scholarship. My family and I are extremely grateful!
