Zoey Smith - Southwest Florida Women's Foundation

Zoey Smith

“I can’t wait to be in medical school, and want nothing more than to be a doctor. Earn to Learn FL™ allowed me to focus on my schoolwork by cutting back work hours without suffering financially.”

Zoey works tirelessly to achieve the high grades, clinical experience, and research experience necessary to get into medical school. She lives by herself, and is almost completely financially independent from her parents, who live in another country.

Not only does Earn to Learn FL™ allow Zoey focus more on school, it also made it possible for her to accelerate her degree by taking summer classes, which would not have been covered by any of her other scholarships. Because she was able to take those classes, she was able to transfer to FGCU sooner, and is one step closer to achieving her goal of becoming a doctor.
