Earning a college degree has always been a dream of mine. Growing up in a Christian single parent home and watching my mother sacrifice for my sister and I always made me strive to do my best and to achieve high. Taught to always trust and keep God first. This scholarship would help with tuition and books toward the college that I am chosen to attend. I would be the first to earn a degree in my family. Any money offered or awarded to me would be greatly appreciated to help with my college expenses. Thank you for this opportunity.
