I'm an African American, came to United State few month ago in search for a proper education and better life. I faced lot of issues with my transcript when I came, but finally I was told I will be graduating this year(2019). I was sad instead of being joyful. I looked up at different colleges tuition and noticed that my family will rot in poverty if they were to pay for this tuition with two of sisters left to take care of. One thing I was told before coming to U.S was that there are lot of opportunities for those who are ready to study. I made up mind never to miss none the opportunity; I asked for what is required of me and I was told GPA, which is what I'm trying to improve. I can't express how grateful I would be, if any of these opportunity happen comes to me. Thanks
