Emma Demuth has got a great party story to tell at college this year. The Charleston native was picked as one of Taco Bell’s three Live Más scholars recipients to create an exclusive taco holster for the Doritos Locos Taco.

According to her application video, Demuth applied for the scholarship after getting accepted to NYU for film studies. And thanks to her winning application, the James Island Charter High School grad received not only designed a snappy taco holster — think of it as a diaper for your taco — but also a cool $10,000 in scholarships.

Now her taco holster design will be on Doritos Locos Tacos for the next two weeks. And for every taco purchased, Taco Bell will donate 10 cents, up to $500,000, to the Taco Bell Foundation’s Live Más Scholarship to fund the Feed the Dream campaign to support young artists.
