I come from a low income, one-parent family in a small suburb of Detroit. My house consists of my mother, my sister, my two brothers, and I. Since I was young I was taught to dream big and go after what I want. What I want is to work with the large, amazing animals that God has put on this earth and major in Zoology. That has been my dream, the one and only thing I have had to look forward to after graduating high school. Now that I am seventeen I am ready to make my dream come true at a remarkable, private, Christian college called Olivet Nazarene University. I have received my acceptance letter and have completed all of the steps needed to earn all of the money I could to succeed in life. I have received a few scholarships and have been participating in contest and entered other scholarships to earn the rest of the money towards my education, but because of my family's situation I am not able to go at this moment. I have earned $30,000 and am shy the additional $10,000. Olivet Nazarene University is giving me an amazing opportunity to study what I love in an environment that lets me continue what I love to do, worship, and make a great life for myself. Thank you for taking the time to read this.Every little bit helps!
