"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 Study.com 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 Study.com for giving me the opportunity and motivation to strive towards success!"
