Dear Judges:

In high school I have always worked to get what I want and need I have been working my way through high school doing what I can so that I want have to ask my single parent mother for anything. The lesson for me in doing that has showed me that it’s not going to be easy to get what I want.

I have been to many different schools and 5 different states and I have experienced a lot of things as I have grown. High school is just the start to going to college or any plans for after high school. My senior year has not been the easiest I’m at a new school again in another state. I left a lot behind in Columbia, SC and now I’m starting over. After high school I plan on going to college to get my BSN/RN degree. I choose this major because for the past few years my grandfather and great-grandfather have been struggling with cancer. My grandfather has always had health problems and since I was a little girl he has told me that I should be a nurse or a doctor so I can take care of him. He has been a major motivation for me to go to college and to pursue my dreams.

I choose to write a paper on black women and their hair because
