What have you gained, personally, from participating in your department's program? 
I learned how to understand more than to be understood. I became a better listener and a better friend since i joined Presidents club. It taught be how to be caring to others and grateful for the things I do have, and not complain about the things I do not have.

Why do you feel you should be awards this scholarship?: 

I should win the scholarship because i am smart, educated, and i am interested in bettering my life through my education. I've overcome many different obstacles in my life that helped me grow and be the man i am today. Only that I hope to win. I feel everyone here deserves to win for the reason being they want to go to school and expand their minds and better themselves.


I have many short term and long term goals. I truly desire to make my mom and dad proud as I am the first to attend college in my family. My goal is to focus and take the necessary steps 1 year at a time until I complete this college journey and then obtain a position with a reputable hospital where I can display my knowledge and talents to aid in helping others. I also have a goal to be able to go to 3rd world countries to render aid to people in need. After I am stable and my career is set in motion I plan to be a husband and a father while praying I can be just half the father that I was blessed with.
