Mceachern High SchoolPowder Springs, GA
My name is Malik bridges, I am a senior at McEachern high school. I am involved In the choir for my forth year now ; I’ve been in every musical my school has had, I am also the Vice President of my chorus class. Being a member of the chorus council is something I take very serious for it is a huge responsibility to me. I am also a member of a club my school calls “kings club” a club where we uplift brotherhood !! I’m looking to become Vice President of that club also. While I have involved myself In the arts aspect of school my dream degree is nursing ; I am going to college to become a nurse practitioner. I wanted to go into this field because although I love to sing and act I have other hobbies or desires in life. I love people, always have ! I’m looking forward to becoming a nurse so that I can assist those in need to my best abilities. Being in the Medical field is something I’ve been passionate about since I was a little kid . Helping people has always been my nature and I can’t wait to do it for my career. I grew up in downtown Atlanta where the education was not the best but thanks to my mother we were moved into a county with a better education system. I live with my single mother who has been my solid parent for my whole life , my mom has been my rock, protecter, provider etc . Growing up with a single mother I could do nothing but dream of someday helping her out and repaying her for all she has done for me and what better way than becoming successful in something I love and taking care of my mother. While I know this journey to success won’t be easy I am not frightened for my faith is stronger than my fear. A side factor about me ; I am a Christian!!! Who strives for a relationship with god. I have been on this journey for a while now, the lord has always been good to me and I believe he deserves all of the praise. I’m taking it day by day and will not let anything throw me off my path. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be apart of this scholarship while I hope I win ! Whoever wins deserves it, Have a great day thank you again.
