In the next ten years, I would like to revolutionize the way prose is written.
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
eINSURE, the top insurance quote provider on the Internet, is pleased to announce the inaugural eINSURE Your Future Scholarship Recipient. This year’s winner is Patience Williams, a freshman at Oklahoma City University. Her essay stood out among the field of almost 500 applicants because it shared a unique vision. Dave Thompson, President and CEO of eINSURE, believes Patience’s passion for knowledge and clearly defined goals make her a prime example of the kind of young person who will ensure that America’s next generation will have a bright future.
“We hope this scholarship will help Ms. Williams achieve her academic goals and set her on a path to success. Her insights about writing and audience are exactly the type of far-reaching yet practical vision that makes American universities shine. Her active engagement in her community and passion for her chosen field completed her winning profile. We’re proud to award her the eINSURE Your Future Scholarship for 2014.”
Patience Williams is a native of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and a graduate of Putnam High School. She is majoring in English at Oklahoma City University, where she holds a GPA of 3.85. Patience is assistant secretary of her school’s Black Student Association and is a member of the prestigious National Leadership of Success. She loves classic literature and Wes Anderson films. Patience plans on being a published author after graduation, and she already has a head start: her literary writing has been published in The Scarab, the annual student literary magazine at OCU.
Patience has big ambitions. In her winning essay, she writes, “In the next ten years, I would like to revolutionize the way prose is written.” Citing the great American philosopher Henry David Thoreau, Patience writes, “Man is not changing as fast as technology.” Her vision of super-concise writing is aimed at the smart-phone-shortened attention spans of her peers. “We can complain about our desperate ‘need’ to always check our phones,” Patience writes, “or our inability to focus for decent amounts of time, but our world is revolving. We must revolve with it.”
A similar vision has driven eINSURE since David Thompson founded the company in 1992. Since then, eINSURE and einsurance.com, its online insurance quote comparison marketplace, have been helping businesses and consumers understand the benefits of comprehensive insurance of all kinds, while building partnerships with insurance providers. Today, eINSURE is the trusted leader in matching consumers with the best insurance fit.
