I have worked so hard in school waiting for a moment like this. UNCW would be a great challenge for me, but it would also help me out immensely. UNCW has a excellent education program and that is exactly the field of study I aim to go into. I spent approximately half of my sophomore year at the early college tutoring at Dobson Elementary.

As a child, I was never aware of my family’s financial struggles. My parents divorced when I was 12 and money became the central issue in my life.

The heart of New York City is New York University.

When I took walks around the Village with my grandfather, he would point out the students and the different NYU buildings.

I graduated from high school in 2013, and attended James Madison University from August 2013 to December 2014. I began having health problems during the 2014 fall semester and when the semester ended I withdrew from the classes I had taken and returned home on a medical leave of absence.

When that went smoothly, I signed up for one summer class at my local community college.
As a computer science student, I have always been fascinated by the idea of creating something from nothing, and the limitless potential that technology has to offer. I started my academic journey at Riverside City College, where I was able to gain a solid foundation in computer science and develop my programming skills.

This is why I have decided to transfer to the University of Southern California. My primary reason for transferring to USC is to be part of a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about technology and its potential to change the world.

When I learned that this university could fulfill my dream of studying World Health and was located blocks away from the institutions I always envisioned myself working for, I was instantly captivated.

By being a member of a community where national leaders and global guests convene to share personal experiences, I will be inspired to follow in their footsteps.
I was given an opportunity that most students looking at colleges didn't have, I had the opportunity to live with my brother for a week at Syracuse. This was the best college visit I had ever done because I got to see exactly what student life was like, something that no tour that I have taken has given me thus far. My visit was at the right time because school spirit was at an all time high. The basketball team was on their way to the final four, so everyone was incredibly proud to be a part of the Syracuse Orange. In addition to this I really felt as if I was home, even though I was 14, I did not feel out of place once.
