One may feel as if she uses this type of style to create empathy for her through her readers. Van Kleef, a social psychologist observes that “…more positive attitudes about various topics after seeing a source’s sad expressions when topics are negatively framed” (Kleef 1). This proves that by using her grandmother’s departure through her essay she provokes emotion from her readers. March states, “Mom was exhausted after a year of caring for her mother, and I was crying relentlessly—but still, we went, compelled to do something with our grief" (March 2). This quote will additionally make one feel as if sorry for the loss of her grandmother and the dreams she possesses for not only herself but for the generations of her family.

I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement. I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education.
People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up. My answer is: you sacrifice to pay back those who sacrificed for you.

About 18 years ago, I became a part of my parents life. As usual, they taught me basic discipline, defense, leadership and more. My family is from Hispanic heritage, where completing a college education is not expected for the future. As a result, my parents enforced the importance of education, and encouraged me to graduate high school and further my education by attending the college of my choice. In addition, I have recently graduated high school with Honors, and it was an incredible feeling being able to make my parents proud knowing that I am the first Honor graduate even in my extended family.
The more I thought about my decision, Job Corps seemed to be the right fit for me. I chose to get my high school diploma at Job Corps and enrolled there on July 13, 2015.

I am going to finish Job Corps to make sure that I have good opportunities in my life.

Her lack of confidence and self worth took a toll to the words and actions of her stepfather. Even after escaping her father she covered her mouth when she smiled because he
The United States is a land of opportunity. Immigrants, like my parents, have all dreamt of achieving their American Dream. For my Parents, part of that American Dream is for their children to graduate from a University. As the oldest child from our traditional Chinese family, I will be the first of my generation to attend college and fulfill my parents’ dreams. Although my parents set high standards, I wanted to excel beyond their expectations so that I could do well for myself and be a role model for my three younger siblings.
