In this stage of my life, it is essential that I think about my future and my goals. In doing so, I also have the opportunity to reflect on my past, the road that has gotten me to where I am. As I look to pave my future, I see the path that I have followed has one that will help me to be successful in life. In reflection, I realize that I have been blessed with two loving parents, who, despite divorce, have made my life and our family a priority.

Both of my parents have lead successful lives through hard work, and I have learned through their example how to live life to the fullest and how to appreciate what I have in my life, not just material things, but opportunities, people, and gifts of talent and intellect. Through participating in athletics (four years varsity volleyball and two years varsity basketball) self-discipline and a healthy mind and body have become a priority in my life.
By being healthy and active, along with hard work and determination, I can better handle the demands that I desire for my immediate future – attending a four year college program. There I hope to be successful and hold a grade point average at or above what I currently have earned: 3. 4. I want to obtain a well rounded education and plan on working in law enforcement, like my father. This scholarship will help me to achieve this goal.
