Personal Statement

First, I want you to know what I can do to help the team; I hustle and work hard every time I get the opportunity to practice and/or play. I take charges, play tough defense, always box out, take good shots. I have a good vision of the court and I make the proper passes. Some of my qualities go unnoticed, because I am a team player. I always have an extremely positive attitude. Education is extremely important, not only to society, but to me and my family as well. I am not satisfied with mediocre. I strive and my family pushes me to do and be my best in everything I do. Due to my family preparing me for life, I feel I am equipped for the adverse challenges that come my way. I feel that a high quality education will challenge me the most, therefore, I strive for that high quality education. Reality is, everything in this world revolves around money. A four year institute with a high quality education is extremely expensive! In order for me to go to college, I would have to have a college scholarship. A scholarship opportunity opens doors to world class education where after college/university you can get any job in any place in the world with that certificate. A college scholarship is an opportunity for a better tomorrow. A wise man once said that a dream is useless unless executed. Scholarships have fulfilled many peoples’ dreams and it’s on me to turn my dream into a reality.
