I am a hard working person. I am very independent and like it when people depend on me, because I don't let people down. I always try to do the right thing even if no one is looking. I have a Unweighted GPA of 3.07, and am a senior attending at south mountain high school. My grandma has 3 children including me in her household and doesn't even make $50,000 a year. I am entering to hopefully win so my grandma doesn't have to worry about me not going to college, because I may not be able to afford it. its always been my dream to attend University of Arizona. this money will help me fulfill that dream.
