I was selected for the prudential spirit of community awards, but somehow the website didn't send a email to my principal and I didn't get certified. So i am sending a request that I care a lot about my community and want to make my family proud so please help me get the scholarship.

I applied for this scholarship because I want the opportunity to further my education and to be able to excel and do what I love to do best. I love designing characters, art and animation. My Mom have always taught me to be a leader and not a follower. My Mom has raised me to be a respectable and hard working young man. I am elated for this opportunity and I pray I am chosen for a scholarship. Thanks!

It is tough for me to come to United state for study, i was only 16 years old with no English, but my mom see the future of mine in America. Since i cam here I started to like this country, because this country has more freedom than my country, freedom of speech, freedom of religion. i think i am going to be last Uyghur generation to come to United state. my national have no chance to come here to study. so i want use this opportunity to try my best to accomplish my education here and change the situation of my national Uyghur.

It could be really tough to come to a new country when you are only 15 years old. But I did it. I moved to the United States almost 2 years ago and i love it. Now I'm a Junior and about to graduate in 2019. At first i was scared and shy but later on I learned that there's nothing to be afraid of. I finished freshman year in Hungary and started sophomore year here, I was able to improve my english skills a lot and one of my biggest dreams is me going to college and to be successful in life. I want to show everyone that even though, life isn't the easiest at times but it's all worth it at the end of the day. Also, I want to prove myself that I am able to do whatever I want and to never give up. I applied for this scholarship because this would help me to be successful in life and to persue the education that I desire to get.
