I'm currently in my first year of college and being a full-time student with 16 units. Along with school. I'm working part-time just to order the basic necessities of school supplies, gas to get to class, and paying for the classes myself. I grew up with a single mother because my father died when I was four years old. Although she gave me everything possible, she can't afford to pay the bills and send me to college herself. With that being said, spending the money I earned while working on tuition and this scholarship money for the things I need most importantly would help me greatly and relieve the stress of making ends meet.

As a freshman in high school, some might say that this is too early to start thinking about the cost of college. I'm grateful that I have parents that make sure we work together to choose a college and not to rely on student loans as the fall back to pay for college.
