However my father is having some financial problems. That is the reason why I applied for this scholarship. My mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer and aware of her condition in the spring of my junior year in high school. Back then,I did not weep, I did not flinch. In fact, I hardly even moved even though I was terrified of what was coming as I might be losing someone who had been there for me since I was a kid but from that point onward, I vowed that I would do anything and everything to please my mother and make her proud of me.Every subsequent award won and every honor bestowed upon me has been inspired by the recollection of my mother's plight.
I will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face. The challenge of moving to a new country, struggling to survive, and learn a new language have all led to who I am today, and for that, I feel I am a better person. Your investment in me today will certainly help bring a brighter future for me
I knew that I didn’t want to be a lawyer, but I had no idea what I did want to do with my career. It’d be extremely expensive to go back to college for another bachelor’s degree, and I didn’t want my parents to know that I quit law. Since
When I saw my mom, I saw myself and who I wanted to be.When I finally overcame the divorce, I saw myself growing into a stronger and more independent person.I began to try my best in school and I actually ended up getting honor roll that quarter. The divorce was a challenge I had to overcome to achieve my goal, however, it molded me into the person I am today.I knew that God had a plan for everyone and if this was his plan, for my parents to divorce then it was for a good reason.I believe that the good reason was to help me grow as a person and reach my
But I never thought of breaking my friendship with any of these top students even after facing such small cruelties. We are all still friends! All I wanted to do was to improve myself and be someone like them. An intelligent, perfectionist and a winner! And let me tell you once I set my mind to anything I most certainly can get it done.
When my mom and dad got a divorce, it helped me and made me a large part of who I am. I am more independent, more mature, and I won 't let people walk all over me. I think that it made me a stronger person. Being this kind of person I am more willing to go and do things the way I want with respect, I don 't let people walk all over me. So that bad situation ending in a good one.
Throughout my life, I have encountered many obstacles that contribute to who I am today. Luckily I have had the strength within me to overcome all of them. When I was seven years old, my parents filed for a divorce. My father moved to sacramento and my mother stayed in Redwood City with my Sister and I. I didn 't understand why. I didn 't understand how, but I could not find the courage to ask my mother about either.
I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters. Growing up, my parents have always been really strict on me, more than they have been with my younger sisters. I never really understood why, until now two months after my fathers’ death. My fathers’ dream was always to see his three daughters graduate with a college degree. Both of my parents, especially my father always expressed to me the importance my education, for my future.
My mum is an only child, so I often ask her what it was like growing up. I imagine she had all the attention she wanted and how peaceful and calm her life was. I so wish for a life of bliss and amicable. However, I could not envision my life without my family. I adore the feeling of that homely welcoming and the warmth of a huge family.
