If asked to describe my high school experience to someone, I would simply state that these years have been the best years of my life. Although they weren’t always easy, I strived to do my best in everything and achieve goals that satisfied my own being. As I continue to grow up, I hope to keep aiming to do my best and attend McNeese State University and study Radiology. I believe I deserve this scholarship because I have the determination to go through college ready and willing to learn about things that will affect my future. I know that I have the ability to do anything I put my mind to, no matter how hard the task is. Growing up in such a small community I have always admired people older than me that have reached theirs goals in life. I have attended Grand Lake High since I was three years old and have always been a motivated and determined person. All fifteen years of my Grand Lake experience I have kept my grades up and I know I have the potential to succeed in college. My future is and always has been very important to me. I believe that I deserve this scholarship because I plan on making my years at McNeese State University my main priority. I am a very devoted person and finish anything I start. Receiving this scholarship will help me to keep working to do my best to make my family, my community, and most of all myself proud.
