How I Earned College Scholarships

Over the years, I have worked with many students and families who have inquired about how I earned a Ph.D. for free. Earlier this month, I spoke with Mr. Ryan McCrary, CEO of Ryan McCrary Financial Solutions, and we discussed my academic journey and I explained how I amassed nearly $1M to earn my undergraduate and graduate degrees.

  1. Yes ma’am,

    I saw your interview with Mr. McCrary and I was very impressed with your knowledge concerning scholarships. I mentioned in that talk Rick James being from Buffalo. I hope you consider granting Boyce Watkins or Zaza Ali an interview. What grants could my 13 year old daughter apply for now? That is mind-blowing to be able to pull that off.
