I believe that I should be awarded this scholarship because I come from a background in which my parents did not go far with education. This has made life hard for my family and myself. My mother is unable to work because she is dealing with multiple sicknesses and my father, who was our main source of income, passed away. My parent both put a lot of pressure on me to get a good education, but we lack the funds to make my dreams of becoming a doctor a reality. If I am awarded this scholarship, I would be so grateful and it would not go to waste.
For as long as I can remember learning has always intrigued me. I desired to be the best at learning to read in first grade, the best at learning multiplication facts in fourth grade, and the best at learning to titrate acids and bases in eleventh grade. Striving to learn the most has simply become a habit of mine. Throughout high school, my schedule was always filled with honors and AP classes allowing me to learn more and more everyday. After school and practice my nights were spent doing hours of homework to keep up my academic record. The amount of work I put in has paid off as evident by my transcript. I am ranked 6th out of a class of 296 with an over 4.0 gpa. Last year, I received a five on the AP Calculus AB exam and fours on AP Language and Composition and AP Chemistry exams making me an AP Scholar. Thankfully people were not exaggerating when they said hard work reaps rewards. My day in and day out diligence in school that stemmed from a love of learning led to my acceptance into Carnegie Mellon. The interactive intellectual environment draws me toward the prestigious school. I hope to one day graduate from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering and to then begin a successful and purposeful career ignited by my

College is the next step, but how could I get through it without financial problems that could grow worse anytime? This question pestered me relentlessly everytime I think about attending college until I decided I need to apply for any scholarship that would help me reach my life goals.
Last year, I decided that I wanted to do something important for my community so I volunteered to be a basketball coach at my church's basketball league. For about 4 months, I got to coach a team of hyperactive 4th and 5th graders. On the first day of practice, I asked my players what they wanted to achieve by the end of the season. One of my players said that he wanted to be able to shoot a three pointer by the end of the season. From then on, I helped him to improve his shooting. He wasn't the greatest shooter, but he was determined to perfect his shooting skills and I was determined to do everything I could to help him. During practice, I would help him with his shooting form and even after practice I would give him tips on how to get

Keterina Clacks Essay- scholarship Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to represent something that mattered. I wanted to be great at anything I decided to do in life. When I started the 6th grade I had no idea of what I wanted to be when I grew up; until I met my smart lab facilitator Mr. Max Brooks. At that time, He was in charge of the smart lab at our school and he was also the robotics coach. I remember when he asked me personally to join the team. He picked about eight other students just like me to be on the team. Specifically, NSBE stands for the National Society of Black Engineers. All students that he hand-picked to be on the team were to design a robot that followed a pre-set course. We worked after school every day getting

Academically speaking, I believe I am an exceptional student due to my ability to manage my time effectively. My GPA is currently a 4.00 because of the importance I place on doing well in school and putting in the time to study
Before going into what I will be studying, I thought I would give a little background information about who I am as a student. I strive to challenge myself in school and beyond the school walls, which is part of the reason I applied for this Pre-College Program at Harvard University. When I first heard about this opportunity, I was intimidated at odds of me getting it. Nonetheless, February of 2017, I decided to apply for an Advanced Placement U.S. History class at school, National
Clearly, my inclination toward more advanced learning did not stop after I left the fifth grade. While my family taught me that school was important, a majority of my learning was inspired by my desires to learn and to succeed. My high school workload has consisted almost exclusively of Honors and AP level courses. In fact, I was one of only a handful sophomores in a AP United States History course dominated primarily by upperclassmen. I have maintained above a 4.0 GPA in spite of the more rigorous workload and all of my AP scores have been 4’s and 5’s. I’m currently enrolled in four other AP courses:

I only have one son who has his own family now but I still want to show him and other family members what they can do if they just put their mind to it. There is only one other person from siblings who graduated from college my sister Betty. I know she did well but she did end up going in the military in end. Work experience is something I lack because it has been over 10 years since I have worked. My disability has really made it hard for me to work outside my home. Therefore, I want to start my own business and this has been one of my many dreams. Being your own boss sounds exciting and I know it will be a lot of pressure
