Since the start of high school, I knew that I was about to embark on a journey that would prepare me for my future and ultimately a college education. As the President of the Key Club, I was able to inspire [students] to be passionate and dedicated in providing service to others... despite obstacles I had to overcome.

My school does not have all the resources of a private school or good public school; in fact we lack many essential resources and materials. However, I managed to rise above these insufficiencies by taking initiative in finding what I needed for my education.

Where are they now?

College is going well, and I have made so many new friends by joining two great programs — the Black Student Union and Pre-Health Club. Although some classes are tough, I am learning what kind of study techniques are needed to be successful. Outside of school, I am working at Learning Skills Services 9 hours a week, (just enough time to keep myself busy and earn some extra money for groceries). It is a great place to work, very quiet, and allows for me to do my school work some of the time.
