My past experiences have shown me that with passion, dedication and hard work, I will be able to face the challenges of a law school experience at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. I am certain that furthering my education at this institution will provide me everything necessary to become a successful juvenile defense attorney. I am ready to take on this new challenge and experience of pursuing a law degree so that I can make gradual progress towards establishing equality for a better
My intelligence and intellect are also very important to me and thus have led me to this situation. I have a passion for learning that fuels my success in education. Intellect is an important aspect of any good leader and community member. My intelligence allows me to catch on to new things quickly and process new information rapidly. This helps me to assess situations with a clear state of mind; leading me to problem solve if applicable, at a fast rate in the
Why do I want to be in the Criminal Justice Program? I want to be in this program because I personally think it is a great experience. That it is something that you get a lot out of. Now I will be honest I did not really know what to write in this essay but the more I thought about it, I thought about my dreams. Who I wanted to become and what I wanted to do with my life.
Another goal I have is to be a great leader/ role model for not only my family, underclassmen, but my community. Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.
From an early age I have always had an interest in the legal system, as a child of divorcees the legal system has always had an impact on my life. I have always dreamed about being a family lawyer and have hoped that through hard work and dedication I could make my dream a reality; enter law school, successfully complete the bar exam and utilize my knowledge of the law to help those who may otherwise be left in the cold by the legal system. As I have grown older I have a new understanding of the realities of just how difficult it will be to make my dreams a reality. When writing this application, I had difficulty figuring out what I can say that will set me apart from other candidates. I almost feel as though everything that I will say has been said before and there are most likely some situations that sound more sympathetic than my own.
When I was young, if she saw litter she would always pick it up, stating “If we don’t pick it up who will?” Her rectitude taught me to take the initiative in my education and in my community. By being accepted into The PCTI chapter of the National Honor Society, I hope to further my education while also developing my character and defining what exactly it is I wish to accomplish in life. I hope having other like minded, self driven peers and mentors surrounding me will push me to reach my potential while I aid them in doing the same. The National Honor Society is more than just another accolade to me. It is a pillar of education and citizenship.
However, my only choice is to thrive. 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

I am attending college to make a better life for myself, network with future employers through the honors program, gain experience through internships, and gain hands on experience in Forensic Science and Criminal Justice. I will learn skills necessary for my occupation goal. Some of the skills
It gave me an identity, a purpose and a community. It was the spark that set me on a path to become the first male in my family to earn a degree and exposed me to the possibility of a professional legal career. This journey is why I believe in the potential for businesses to drive authentic positive change in people’s lives. I’ve lived out this belief through my work experience. After my athletic career, I joined an initiative called Stick jumping.

After I graduate college. I plan on going to graduate school and getting my Masters in Criminal Justice and Early Child Education!

Ever since I was little, I have always had a strong desire for justice in the world. I want to work for an organization that can help create a more just society.
