Meet The 2018 Scholarship Winner, Kristína!

Kristína was one of thousands of university students who answered the essay prompt, "Who Is An Entrepreneur Or Business Owner That You Admire Or Look Up To, And Why?" The heart in her essay stood out to NBC as Kristína explained how her parents' dedication to successfully running their own business--and overcoming many obstacles along the way in order to do so--inspired a passion for business in herself from an early age. Kristína gave us genuinely unique and creative insight into what it means to be an indomitable entrepreneur, and we're so happy to be able to give back by helping her with tution as she continues studying Accounting at the University of Houston.

When Kristína won the scholarship she said, "Big thank you to the National Business Capital. I am honored to be the winner and receive this scholarship. It moved me closer to making my dreams come true." Kristína, we are so happy to be part of helping you make your dreams come true and wish you a lifetime of success!
