SHANYA ROBINSON-OWEN

George Washington Carver High School of Engineering, Phila, PA
Shanya exceeded over $1 million in scholarship money from 30 different colleges; among them were: Moravian College, PA; La Salle University, Philadelphia; Temple University; Lincoln University, MO; and Cabrini University, PA.
She spent the last two years in high school learning virtually because of the pandemic, but  that did not deter her from focusing on the next level of her education. Although Shanya didn’t set her expectations too high when applying to colleges, her hard work paid off overwhelmingly.
I didn’t expect to get this; I knew about the scholarships, but I didn’t expect it to be this much at all,” she said. As for college preferences, she says it is not the school that offers her the most handsome scholarship package. “I don’t want to base it on money, and then I don’t like the school and will not finish.” She planned to major in psychology.
