Once I get into college, I plan to double major in psychology and sociology with a
minor in counseling. I am very interested in the function of the human brain and
the behavior of different types of people. I would like to acquire my masters degree
and eventually open my own practice. The first thing I would be inclined to pursue
is give back to my community by offering my services to people in need of my
services, however are not able to afford the fees associated with this kind of treatment. I
would involve myself with agencies geared to help the under-privileged.
If I were to win this scholarship, it would give me the proper education I need to
make a difference in this world. I do not want any limitations when it comes to my
education and this money would make sure that doesn’t happen. My parents would do
everything they can to put me through college; however, I do not want this to be a burden
for them. I have a sister attending college also and from what I have witnessed, it is
pretty expensive. My parent’s income is not enough, therefore student’s loans will have
to come into play. Money is the main reason why these opportunities are passed up and
neglected. These funds are going to get me to pursue my education and achieve goals.
I think one of the best lessons I’ve learned is that it’s okay to make a name for
yourself and become independent. I learned that fears shouldn’t hold us back, however it
should give us determination to succeed. I let my fear control me, but once I realized the
predicament I was in, I changed my mindset. I no longer wanted to be a part of the
crowd. I no longer wanted to settle for mediocrity or the norm. I am now powerful
