I started AVID as a 8th grader. As a first generation bound college student; I felt lost. My family had no previous experience with college so they would not be able to help me. I felt like all the weight of school and college was on my shoulders, a 14 year old left seeking opportunities that would help achieve the American dream “college”.
They taught me that an educated person is one who can accomplish great things. They pushed me to be that person. They pushed me to do the best I can academically. An accomplishment that I am proud of is being inducted into the, “National Honor Society.” This has proven to me that hard work and dedication pays off and has allowed me to be recognized for all the sacrifices made to achieve high grades in the most challenging courses offered at my high school. This would never have been possible if not for the "push" my family gave me towards education and hard
Avid has academically shaped me through leaps and bounds. I had always maintained pretty satisfying grades in school, but Avid has improved me so much.

Avid will hopefully help me find the right school along with steering me in the right direction.

Upward Bound helped me open myself to the idea of attending a big university with the help of finding financial aid. They would help me apply to any prospective scholarships, writing the essay, meeting the requirements, recommendation letter etc. I am very glad to have such a great source to find these great opportunities through. Upward Bound was one of the greatest factor in choosing my college because of their generous help with keeping my grade up, setting up a criteria for myself, and by helping me find opportunities to pay off my tuition.

Thinking back, I was crushed; I expected to be able to attend the college of choice for my friends. After reality set in, as being the sixth child out of seven and wearing hand me downs, I should have realized I could not go away for school.

I have attended Southern Virginia University where the motto is “Preparing leader-servants” and a large focus is on developing service minded graduates.
