“My education is very important to me and I have always been grateful for the opportunities that come my way. As I continue onto college, I am confident that I will make myself and my family proud. Going to college will open up many doors in not only my life, but also the lives of those close to me.”
“My college education would not just help to grow up in both personal and academic areas of my life, but have a different vision of my future. It will help me to develop my different skills by exploring new subjects, extending my worldview by living in a diverse environment interacting with new people. I believe college will provide my with the tools and knowledge that I need to guide me on the right path to complete my career and be a successful person. I would like to help my Latino community in college, inspiring and encouraging other students with the same issues as me that they can achieve their dreams and goals.”
“I hope one day that we end the idea of first generation students. I want to help that by changing this idea of college being a fantasy for students. I want to make it a trend for students to pursue something beyond just high school. With a degree I can increase my chances of earning more money that I can give back so I can be the person I needed growing up.”
