As part of Silver Dollar Financial’s commitment to making the world a better place, we started our Public Speaking Scholarship to benefit current and incoming college and graduate students. That’s because Inc.com rates public speaking as the biggest skill that indicates future success.
This year, we are pleased to announce that Reshmi Joseph has won the $2,500 award. She wrote a compelling essay and gave a 90-second speech about the importance of creating a “growth mindset” in students.
A Biochemistry and Biophysical Sciences major at the University of Houston, Joseph plans to become a teacher through the teachHOUSTON program. In keeping with her passion, she desires to instill a mindset in her future students that focuses on effort rather than some innate sense of intelligence.
“Those with a growth mindset know that they can learn from failures and put in the effort to become better,” wroteJoseph. In contrast, a “fixed” mindset tells students that they “are at a threshold barrier, and nothing can change that they are just not good at certain things.”
In her 90-second speech, Joseph summarized the growth mindset that she is so passionate about. ““[W]ith a growth mindset, you build a world that gives more possibilities, encouragement, and doors open for you.”
