The Create and Go Design Your Future Scholarship

About Our Scholarship

The development of Create and Go was fueled by following our dreams of making a living by blogging and helping others start a successful blog

Our dream was often tested at the beginning of our journey. Trial and error paid off and we created a successful business blogging which made it possible for us to design our own future; work from anywhere in the world and write about what we love while earning an impressive income.
