The H.O.P.E. Scholarship Initiative is excited to announce Daquanna Bates as the winner of H.O.P.E.’s 4th Annual 140 Twitter Challenge. The 140 Twitter Challenge is a scholarship competition designed to meet students where they are — on social media. This scholarship contest is easy; students respond to a question provided by HOPE on Twitter (@hopescholarship) in 140 characters or less and the best response is awarded a $140 book scholarship.

For this challenge we posed the question, “Where do you find hope in a challenging world?” Bates’ winning response was, “I find hope in education empowerment. I want to make sure no one perpetuates the mythology of ignorance upon my people.”

Daquanna Bates is a sophomore, economics major at Howard University. Continue to be a  HopeDealer Ms. Bates, a person with the intent to make the world a better place.
