Struggling academically for most of my school carer has taught me I can't give up I have to try twice as hard as the next student. Throughout high school, I believe I’ve done so. I’ve managed to keep up with all honors classes, perfect attendance, and above a 3.5 GPA. Things haven’t ever been easy for me in school, but that hasn’t stopped me from becoming the best student I can be. Having been through these things made me the person I am today, it made me more committed than ever before. For someone to tell me college is a waste of money and time is a slap in the face. And unfortunately, my family doesn't have the funds for me to go to college, that's why I'm applying for this scholarship.
