Libbey Law Offices, LLC sees the impact of injuries on a daily basis. While some injuries are evident, others persist far beyond the victim alone. For this reason, we created the Injured Individual Scholarship so students can explain the effects of a far-reaching injury.
We are excited to announce that Mary V. has been chosen as our 2022 scholarship winner! Mary wrote about her late brother’s struggle with his ankle injury and how it affected him and his loved ones at a psychological level.
Mary strives to become a nurse and we are proud to help her pursue that dream. Read below to learn more about Mary!
2022 Winner: Mary V.
Biography: I’ve grown up and lived in the greater Washington, D.C area all my life, where I was fortunate to receive my Bachelor of Health Science degree. I am currently enrolled in the accelerated second-degree nursing program at Fairfield University, CT and looking forward to starting my nursing career in a new state! Healthcare has always been something I’m passionate about. I am a living kidney donor to my big sister and the two of us have since gone on to live our best lives, including having the opportunity to ski the mountains of Japan. Outside of my education goals, I enjoy making my friends and family laugh, cracking witty jokes and hope to develop a hobby of my own podcast or standup comedy someday.
Reaction statement: I was truly ecstatic to receive the call from Libbey Law Offices, LLC. To be honest, my phone gets flooded with spam calls so upon picking up the call I was a bit hesitant! The congratulations call was very pleasant, and it touched me to hear how impactful David’s story was for you all. I was having a happy tearful moment. This is my first ever scholarship win, and it will hold a very special place in my heart. To be recognized and have my story heard means just as much as the award itself. This accomplishment is a telltale sign that if I can put myself out there and be awarded a scholarship, I can handle my rigorous nursing program.
