Congratulations to Annie Bone, one of this year’s three Holt Adoptee Scholarship winners!
This year, each applicant submitted a creative work framed around the prompt, “What’s in a name? Revealing the stories behind our adoptive names, birth names and nicknames.”
My name is Annie. I submitted a zine showcasing my different names and how they represent me. I was overjoyed when I heard I had been awarded this scholarship. I plan to pursue a civil engineering degree at Texas A&M University. This money will go towards my many textbooks and tuition. I am excited to start my college career and can’t wait to see where the future will lead me!
