🌟GIVING THANKS!🌟 We’re thrilled to share updates from our 2017 #Narcolepsy scholarship recipients from college! Get ready for some serious inspiration... 🙌🏻 “I love being a student at the University of Tennessee! Sociology class is very fascinating, and I enjoy being involved with the Baptist Collegiate Ministry.
Before starting college, I was fearful of balancing my courses and social life while still getting enough sleep. I’ve found that setting multiple alarms in the morning, taking a nap between classes, and studying outside of my dorm room have been immensely helpful habits. Managing narcolepsy in college has its challenges, but I’ve found ways to balance my time and am receiving amazing support from disability services, my professors, and friends.
Being chosen as a scholarship recipient is something I am incredibly grateful for. Being supported by people who understand the challenges of living with narcolepsy is very meaningful to me. Knowing that there are people who believe that I can succeed despite my illness motivates me to be the very best version of myself.” – Jenna, University of Tennessee, JJNS Recipient 2017
