Irvine, Calif.𑁋The Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates is proud to announce that the winner of the 2019 Samer Habbas & Associates scholarship is Taylor Martin. Out of the many qualified candidates, Martin was chosen to receive the annual scholarship, in which she will be awarded $2,500.
Martin presented exemplary strength and courage through the hardships her family faced. In her application, she outlined the importance of mental health and how, with the right mindset, you can conquer any hurdle thrown your way. Through trial and tribulation, Martin discovered that accidents, though unexpected, are opportunities to grow from and lessons to be learned.
In America, 70 percent of college students are consumed in a significant amount of debt; the average student graduates college with almost $40,000 in student loans. Just attending a college/university is costly enough. When one is faced with a life-altering accident, the costs are more than just physical.
“Nobody can predict an accident or its consequences. Therefore, most people are unprepared for the aftermath of a serious collision to either themselves or loved ones. On a daily basis, we see these life-altering incidences in the clients we represent. We have implemented this scholarship to be given to those striving to advance their education, despite facing challenges that come unexpectedly. This student has exemplified ultimate resiliency. We are proud to contribute this scholarship towards Taylor’s academic endeavors and hope to alleviate any financial stresses that she may face with the growing costs of education,” said Samer Habbas, Senior Partner of Samer Habbas & Associates.
The Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates curated this annual scholarship, in 2018, for students who have suffered a life-altering incident and are facing financial hardship. The firm believes that no student should not miss out on an opportunity to get an education because of a financial setback caused by an unforeseen accident.
