The scholarship I received from the Children’s Scholarship Fund made it possible for me to attend a Catholic school that not only challenged my educational abilities but also allowed me to continue pursuing my goals. I became a better student because of this experience and was accepted into an excellent high school.
I chose to attend Catholic high school because I felt I would obtain a better education. However, if it wasn’t for the support and the generosity of the scholarships, my siblings and I would not have been able to attend Catholic school.
Now in high school, the scholarship is helping me build on my skills, meet amazing friends and use all the resources the high school has to offer. I am currently in tenth grade, with a 92% average, taking honors/AP and Regents classes. I’m also a member of the JV softball team, part of the ambassador committee, and a member of the debate club.
Being in a Catholic school has made a big difference in my academics. The teachers challenge you to do better and I don’t have to worry about my safety. I hope to become a lawyer and donate to the scholarships that helped me through my years of school. Hopefully, I am able to make a difference in someone else life. Without my scholarship, I might not have been where I am now. With humility and gratitude, I will never give up because I am one of the lucky ones receiving a scholarship to better my future.
