Celebrate My 20-Year Reunion with a College Scholarship


This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Florida Prepaid College. The opinions are honest.

You know what today is? Today marks 20 YEARS since I graduated high school. June 7th, 1997, I crossed the stage at Sunrise Musical Theater and received my Plantation High School diploma. After my graduation, we went out for a seafood dinner, my parents, sister, and childhood best friend Alicia. Just a few weeks later, I went on a road trip with my parents and sister to complete my college registration at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. It was so exciting to select classes, plan my schedule, and check out where I would live. I remember just how magical it felt to see my new, more independent life ahead of me!

And you know what? In just 8 days, I’m moving back to Gainesville with my husband and kids. We are insanely excited {and a little nervous} about our big move, about 5 hours north of where we currently live. We have only ever lived as a family in this one home, so it’s going to be a huge transition for us, but hopefully one filled with new adventures! Who knew I would celebrate my 20-year reunion with a move back to my college town?

To celebrate 20 years since I began college AND the return to Gainesville with my family, I’m sharing an awesome college giveaway. I’ve written before about how I paid for my undergraduate degree with a full scholarship + a Florida Prepaid plan that my parents purchased for me.
