Being at the U, I feel proud. I honestly didn’t feel I would get here, but here I am. Receiving this scholarship means I can pursue higher education, continue my education after high school, and go on to greater things.
My parents are my motivation. They’ve always pushed me to do my best and have taught me why education is so important. By coming to this country, my parents have sacrificed so much and have given me the educational opportunities they themselves didn’t have, and I won’t let their sacrifices be in vain. They’ve been my biggest supporters throughout my education and I want to make them proud.
