Im going to continue setting my standards high in hopes that I inspire someone to pursue their dreams. I hope to leave a long lasting impact on my community. The pressure of first generation children of immigrants isn 't easy but that 's why ill continue to work hard to prove all my mothers sacrifices being worth it. I want to make sure kids live in no fear of loosing their parents
My reaction to that idea was always the same "no thanks." In life I have a problem always putting my wants before my needs. I wanted to make a lot of money, I wanted to be on my feet and I wanted to live a better lifestyle than what I thought a teacher did just based on their income. One night before bed I was reading my bible and one verse stood out to me more than ever. It was Galatians 6:6 "The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him."
Not necessarily for college applications, but moreover on the experience that I will gain by being a member. In fact, the opportunities such as giving back to the school and the community will surely hold more value than it would in my college applications. In addition, if I do get accepted, I will surely not be the first to write that I was an NHS member, so would it really make much of a difference? I believe I will be a great contribution for the National Honor Society.
By getting accepted as a Coolidge I will have the mentoring experience that I have always wished for. I will also get to become an impregnable leader through the training program. This is important because to improve a community one has to be an exemplary leader first. Furthermore, I would love to become a greater leader because currently in my generation, regrettably, only one member has gone to college. My parents unfortunately did not even get a full elementary education because of this I see on a daily basis how a life without proper education is like.
I am the best candidate for this scholarship because I have experienced a hard and unwanted event, but I have grown from it and become a better and stronger person because of my parents, which will help me power through college and become a civil lawyer. My mom and dad although divorced, have supported me through every event in my life, making me the person I am today. Living with my mom, I have learned how hard it really is to do things that my dad would have done in a heartbeat. As I grew up knowing that my dad was not coming back through the back door as I hoped, I learned how hard life really is and how life is not fair.
When most people hear the words “illegal immigrant”, they think of bad people coming across the border to the United States and creating problems. Whether it’s from transporting drugs or taking a lot of job positions. What most people don’t think about is that some of those illegal immigrants that come into the United States are coming to have a better life. They want to have a fresh start and work their way up. A lot of those immigrants come to the US at a young age which leads us into the idea of the Dream Act.
I guess it did but I mean the problem, the reason everybody makes college such a big deal it's not a big deal it's just furthering your education so that you are proving to somebody that you did something more than other people. So if you're going to go to a job search, I mean bottom line is you have to work no matter what for the rest of your life.
The work values she instilled in me made me the hard worker I am, from my first job ever to all the hard work I am putting into my education now. I thank her so much for this because if I didn't have that in me I don't know where I would be today. She also raised me with a strong faith in
Since this time in life, I made it a goal to help not only my family but others in need out too. For I know what it is like to have absolutely nothing. In order for myself to achieve this goal in life, I would love to continue my education and graduate from college to get a great job. I know it would take a lot of studying, but I know that it will all pay off in the end. I want to be able to make a change in this world; even if it means starting off with something small.
I have always admired my dad and could say he is my biggest super hero. My father is the best example in my life, and he has proven to me that anything is possible when you want to accomplish great success, with hard work and determination. I really look up to my dad because with his intelligence and
Mine have simply taught me to appreciate the value in education. Since early childhood, they’ve strongly urged me to prioritize school above all else and to learn from their mistakes, not wanting me to struggle as they did. My father has made me realize the importance in pursuing a higher education—it’s the best way to truly be successful and be able to give my family the life they deserve. From my mother I’ve learned the significance of pursuing a career that I will truly enjoy, since it is presumably what I will spend the rest of my life doing. Thanks to my parents, not only have I been university-bound since I was a toddler, but I’ve also genuinely enjoyed learning.
Seeing them sacrifice everything for me since the day I was born, I want to reassure her that I will not live a difficult life in poverty and the only way to get out of poverty is through a college education.
My family isn’t extremely wealthy, I was raised to be independent, that means I will be paying for my own education. I am happy to pay for college and I would love all the help I can get, therefore I am applying for this scholarship! It would mean the world to me if I am awarded this scholarship!
In this case, I have to do it for my family because they all believe in me, I have to do it because I promised my mom a house, and better life for both of us. I have to keep my word, but beside these promises, I want to conquer a better life. I don’t want to get paid minimum wage, I want to have a job that I like doing and maintain a family with that same job. Receiving this scholarship would motivate me more and make those proud who support
Wes Moore. The guy that had a lot of obstacles through his life that got him where he is today, but he didn’t do it alone. Just like anyone you need to have a positive influence on your life. It could be anyone teacher, boss, parent, friend. Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy.
