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.
