As a little girl I have always wanted to go to college. I had struggled so much in life, and never had a good childhood. I however never asked anyone for help, I had always kept quiet, and thought I had everything under control, but now it is time to swallow that pride. I was raised to believe that I wasn't good enough, that no one would take me seriously. All I was meant to do in life was become a house wife, cook and clean and stay in the kitchen for my husband. I want to prove my dad wrong! That I can be so much more than just a house wife, that I can make something out of myself, and I will! I know it will be hard, with no support, but I have made it this far in life, and I plan to keep going no matter what. I know I can do it, I believe in myself, and I will prove to myself that all those painful years were just a huge bump in the road. I don't want to make the excuse that I didn't go to college because of money! I want support my family, or at least be equal with my future husband, I need to do something now to give the life I never had to my future children. The kind of life I know they deserve.
