I would want this scholarship because I struggle with multiple disabilities myself and would love to share my story.

My favorite quote comes from Pastor A. W. Tozer. The quote is “Refuse to be average. Let your soul soar as high as it will”. I am the oldest child of 3 kids. I have 2 younger sisters. My parents have been divorced since the end of my 6th-grade year. On top of all that, I have Mild Cerebral Palsy. I am known for being a fighter and giving up is not even a thought ever in my mind. I started getting involved more in the church, once my parents split. The summer after they split I went to my first Christian bible camp, and that week I decided to give my life for God. I was called by God to become a pastor, but as the Covid-19 Pandemic started, I am now leaning more towards a technology/cybersecurity degree because I have noticed my ability with working with technology. I know God has given me my talents for a reason and I know I will do anything God wants me to do, because of what God has done for me. Having Mild C.P. teaches me that I may not be able to do everything like everyone else but I will work around it and finish with the same result. The mission of Eastern University is to prepare all of their students for a successful life of Christian leadership and service, and as an Eagle Scout is prepared for a successful Christian life is exactly what I want out of the college I go to.

Evelyn Lovato  on 8/14/2020 7:19:00 PM

Hello my name is Evelyn Lovato I am 23 years old, I'm studying to become a teacher for either Kinder or 1st grade. I have a twin sister who is studying to become the first pastor in our family. My story began in Elementary when I was taken out of my normal class and sent to the office, where a person that deals with dyslexia testing began to test me, to understand what level of dyslexia I had. Then after testing they called in my parents to let them know of the results of my testing, one thing I still remember growing up is hearing the teacher letting my parents know that I need to be like my twin sister, smart, from then on I began to feel like an outsider and that I want able to ever get to the level of the other normal students. I was taken out of the class and was placed with other students with the same or other learning disability. I continued to push through and work hard to make A and B in my class but still those thoughts that I wasn't good enough kept on running through my mind. why wants I smart? why wants like my twin sister? where the thoughts that kept on coming through my mind growing up. But I knew that teaching was the path that I wanted to follow, it wants until the end of Junior year in high school when my life changed for the better, I found God in my life and I knew I was favored as a child in christ, all those negative thoughts that I once had went away forever, I found myself. Later on I was presented with a job, I was going to become an assistant teacher in a private preschool, I'm currently working there and I have been promoted to lead teacher now. Once I shut those thoughts with the help of God, I found myself and I found that I'm a person that loves decorating and love doing craft with the kids I teach. My life as a person with dyslexia has been a rollercoaster, I have learned things and I won't change a thing, because through this part of my life, this little part is where I finally have found myself as a person and also as a future teac
