It was misconception, however, because attending this school would bring even more than those I had before. My parents could never be able to afford this school for me, but that didn 't stop me from desiring to live in a place where I knew, opportunities were around every corner and I was right. My University has been so generous since the day I stepped foot on campus and has provided me the support I need to be successful. My responsibilities are still in tact, I 'm working hard to stay in good academic standing, balancing work and organizations, and helping out at home the best I can from hours away. The doors that have opened since I decided to attend Texas A&M are those which I would have never came into contact with if I had failed to believe in myself as well as the Aggies who were immediate to congratulate me when I did.I stepped onto this campus with aspirations of being a Nurse one day, with dreams of nurturing those in need of my assistance whenever needed, in clinics and hospitals.
Just as any other student entering college, we enter scholarships with the intent to help pay for school. As everyone knows college isn’t cheap. I believe the reason i’m applying for this scholarship not only is that of lack of money, but also lies somewhere else, such as why i’m pursuing this degree, and what I intend on doing with it. As a multitude may know fashion design is an up and coming major that is one of the most challenging. I would love to be able to take on this challenge.
In high school, the uttermost important goal for me is to attend college and pursuing my dream of studying forensics, and eventually taking that success and finding a way to give back to the community and people that raised me. The CBC Spouses Education Scholarship will help me acquire the funds to achieve my goal in the long run. I have always been determined and an all round optimist. However, when I entered high school I found out that we, as in my mother and I, do not possess the kind of financial stability that it takes to acquire the learning that I desired. If I cannot work through college and cannot afford my books, unfortunately, all of my hard work will go down the drain.
In total, I work about 32 hours a week and occasionally babysit in the evenings. Why do you feel you are a good candidate to receive this scholarship? I feel I am an exceptional candidate to receive this scholarship because I am dedicated to my sorority, I work hard to earn my own income, and I would be devastated if I could not remain a member because of a financial situation. I am devoted to my studies to earn scholarships to help alleviate some of the student loans I am incurring, but unfortunately those do not go towards greek life. This scholarship would be very appreciated and would not go unnoted.
My dream as a person in the life is to be successful against all odds. the surest way to be successful in this life is by going to college and earning a good degree. By being successful I mean having a job that offers stability for my family, good healthcare provision, job security and retirement plan which serves as an investment in my future. I consider it the surest way because there are no risks involved in terms of time and money spent. Unlike other careers such as being a recording artiste, professional soccer player and so much more the risk involved is high because 4 years could be spent without any tangible progress made.
Although I am a fiscal conservative I recognize the role these programs play in equal opportunity. Without these federal grants and loans my mother would never have been able to achieve the way that she has. Furthermore, without WIC my family would not have been able to support our family of six and its food needs. These experiences have shaped my knowledge, skill set and have granted me a passion for policy. As I look to the future I know I will actively engage with the political process molding my rhetoric, ideas and most importantly developing my abilities to craft solutions to problems that people face in their day to day
I believe that with a college degree, it will be my ticket to providing a better life not only for me, but for my family. I owe my parents everything because they are the ones who gave me this opportunity. It is a chance to better myself and become someone in life. I would be the first in my family to go to college, and that itself is rewarding. A job in the business industry that I love is one goal after college.
Why I Go to School Going to college was always a dream of mine, to be able to experience a high level education for career I always wanted to go into. I never knew if I would have the opportunity because I did not have the financial means to go; however, I applied to college anyway and hope for the best outcome. The free application for federal student aid is what helped me get the tuition to go to college. Just being able to go college for me is a privilege and is something fundamental for my future goals. Therefore, going to class for me is not a chore or something I dread, going to class motivates me for my future.
Throughout all of my years at school, I have been constantly reminded by my parents that I must do my very best in school so that my college will be paid for, because they wouldn’t have enough money to put me through. The ASPMA Scholarship would mean a lot to me as it would help me greatly and enhance my college experience by allowing me to have the highest possible grades, help me grow into an involved, more social person, and relieve some stress that inevitably comes to every college student. Since I would rather not assume student loans during college, I must work if my scholarships don’t cover all of my school expenses. The more I work, the less time I will have to study, and the more stressed out I will be. I believe the ASPMA Scholarship will help me to have the best grades possible because with more funds, I will have to work less, giving me more time to study and less scenarios to worry about.
I decided to come to college not only for me but for my family. My family is my greatest motivation. My determination and curiosity is going to help me immensely in achieving my goals. I will overcome any obstacle put in my way because I will not give up when things get complicated. I believe others will want a meaningful relationship with me in the future now that I am becoming a better me, I hope to positively influence my little brother and cousins so they do not go down the same path that I did.
My Debt I have paid my education through financial aid from Federal institutions, I do not earn enough to pay for my college up front. I have worked at various jobs while attending school to pay for my living expensive but none of that money has been applied to my debt thus far. Also, due to the high cost of living I am unable to make any payments on my loans currently. I’ve tried to make well with what I have for the foreseeable future which is bellow the poverty line. I am certain that hard work and learning, mastering my craft will enable me to pay back my debts on graduation and after I have started my career.
Yet whenever I’d tell someone that, their bright smiles would always falter slightly as the same variety of questions would spill from their lips. “So you want to write for a living?” “What kind of income would that bring?” “Wouldn’t you have to write a best seller to make any type of money?” Questions such as these are the reason I’ve always felt uneasy about telling people what I planned on studying in college, especially my grandpa. He said I should major in Business, like my mom. Or Medicine, like my aunt. Fields of study that actually could land me a decent paying job after college.
