I have spent a lot of my life helping people with any issues they came across, whether they were personal or academic. After teaching, I want to either become a district superintendent, a school principal, or a professor at a university, so that I may continue to help and fight for those I care about.

This scholarship from has provided me the tools necessary to continue my time here at the university -- especially now that financial times are rough for me and my family. I want to leave off by saying that there will always be a scholarship out there for you, and depending on how hard you desire an education, you will persevere. Thank you for giving me the opportunity and motivation to strive towards success!
