In this podcast, Boomer Esiason Foundation Scholarships, you will meet Jillian Goodwin. She is 23 years old with cystic fibrosis and just graduated from Old Dominion University in Virginia. This past winter, Jillian applied for, and won, an academic scholarship from the Boomer Esiason Foundation. You will hear how that shcolarship helped Jillian complete her studies and what she plans to do now that college is over.
One thing is for sure, Jillian was a much better student than I had ever hoped to be. She is quite an impressive person, which just goes to show what it takes to be selected for a BEF scholarship. She can certainly be seen as an inspiration for younger people with CF who are thinking about heading off to college.
