I am majoring in Biology at Wayne State, I recently lost my father to suicide on Father’s Day 2020. Before I never really had a motivation for school but he always wanted me to succeed and become a dentist. After his passing I pushed myself harder to reach this goal. However it is hard to finish school without the financial help I had before.

I am majoring in Health and Human Services at Rogue Community College. I am currently going to be entering in to the last term of my first year of school. At 16 years old I lost my father to suicide. I dropped out of school and now 18 years later I am just now able to manage life for the first time.

My name is Jamilia Kamay Williams and I am originally from the busy city of Boston. I have always surrounded myself with my art and willingness to learn new things. As a child, I was always on the high honors list and played on the softball team at my school. I also became cheer captain while I was in the 5th grade, and fell in love with it. However, I became a victim of racial bullying and had been verbally abused because of my hair and background. I have moved from 2 schools and sadly lived out my middle school experience at home. My mother has always been my supporter. After my father committed suicide in 2012, she has been trying her hardest to push me to become whatever I want to be. I decided after that, I will graduate and become a happy student that wanted to get involved and help others. And I don't plan on changing my mind.

I am a non traditional student in a trade school. I’m older and learning to become a pilot. The passing, by self inflicted wound, of my brother is what sparked my renewed sense of life and started me on this new path. Can I still apply even though I am older and and in a trade school?
