Douglass Diversity Scholarship

383 Words2 Pages
The Douglas Honors Diversity scholarship will help me achieve my educational and professional goals in many ways. This scholarship will help me continue my education and career path that I am passionate about. I am the first in my family to pursue a higher education. I am also the first in my family to deviate from a “set” path for me.
I come from a family that lives off of state help, so we are not able to pay for a higher education. With that going to college is a complicated procedure. My dad dropped out of high school, my mom only got her high school diploma, and my sister has dropped out of community college four times. My mom told me I would never amount to anything and that I could never go to college because we don’t have the money.
