Overcoming adversity is an important part of who we are at Bella Ella Boutique. Alisha Groo, our founder, started Bella Ella as a single mother in an effort to provide a stable living for her small family. The following few years were filled with her fair share of challenges as she navigated the waters as a new mother, business owner, and trying to make ends meet (you can read the full story here). Her inspiring story provides us with the framework for the Bella Ella Boutique 2020 Empowerment Scholarship.

It's our time to give back. in 2020 we will celebrate the accomplishments of women, like Alisha, by awarding a $2,500 scholarship to one who has overcome countless obstacles to work towards her dreams.


Tell us your story. Who are you? What challenges have you overcome? How have your challenges empowered you to achieve more? What do you hope to become? How will you education help you to get there? How would this scholarship help you to achieve your dreams?

As a father of a young woman who has now graduated from college, I understand how expensive it is and how student loans put an added burden. So let me say thank you so very much for providing this scholarship. It is very decent of you to give back in this way and help our young woman be more successful.

Hi! My name is Cintia, I had the privilege of talking to Alisha in one of her stores in Sprinville, Ut. I was a single mom buying clothes for a job interview, she shared her incredible story with me that day making me feel that I will be able to overcome any obstacles even as a newly single mom! I felt her love and empathy, she understood! It’s not surprising that she is behind this amazing scholarship!
