Student, Frederick Douglass Academy, Class of 2016,
Many high school students immediately consider that having money in their pockets to purchase fancy cars, houses, clothing (etc) is the best way to go whenever asked about their goals for the future. However as for me it all tallies around obtaining a well rounded education from college which will allow me to accomplish my dream of becoming a lawyer. And also for me to be able to take care of myself, my families and also to give back to society to the best of my ability. Furthermore, I appreciate my teachers, guidance counselor, and college adviser at Fredrick Douglass Academy 1 in New York City, for the time they invested in me towards my overall success both in the classrooms and on my path towards making the right college decisions. Without them, I wouldn’t even know where to begin the college process and with my performance as a high school student. Therefore, indeed they are playing major roles in my life within the four years of high school education. In the final analysis, I strongly feel that it is very important for me to continue to work hard in order for me to be able to earn these unique scholarships. Because they will give me once in a lifetime opportunities to further pursue my dream of becoming a lawyer. As well as the privilege to better myself in my studies. So that I will be able to make a difference in the lives of others.
