2023 Winner: Danielle Thompson
My name is Danielle Thompson and I am a 24 year old student living in the ever rainy Pacific Northwest with my awesome partner and two adorable cats. I have always had a passion for working with the youth and have been employed by my local school district for the last several years. I’m currently in the process of pursuing a graduate degree in Mental Health Counseling with a dual endorsement in School Counseling. I will be attending Adams State University in Colorado for the upcoming fall semester and couldn’t be more thrilled for the opportunity! After graduation, I plan to work for a few years in community health or for my local school district before working for a private practice that focuses on adolescent counseling.
Reaction Statement: It is hard for me to express in words how much being chosen as the winner for this scholarship means to me! I had to have my mom read the email I received back to me again since I almost couldn’t believe it when I first saw it. I am so very thankful to all the amazing attorneys and staff at Moskowitz Law Firm for taking the time to read my essay, let alone for selecting it as this year’s winner. As we all know, a college education is quite an expensive investment. I have been incredibly stressed by the daunting thought of paying for a graduate degree since I first decided to continue with my education. Being chosen to win this scholarship helps take a weight off of my shoulders and allows me to focus on what’s most important – getting this degree completed. Again, a humongous thank you to everyone at Moskowitz who took the time to read my essay – you are all the best!

Reaction Statement: “I am humbled to have received this award through a scholarship contest on Fair Divorce Legislation, which hits very close to home. The work that the attorneys at Moskowitz Law Group actively participate in everyday largely affects the families and children affected by divorce who eventually become students like myself, and their generosity in giving back makes a huge difference in the opportunities students like myself are given.
