I also know every college is expensive and in order to lower the amount of money being paid students get financial aid help. My parents would help me pay for my school. The cost to go to Penn State University to live on campus is estimated to be a total of $34,982. That is a lot of money and I believe the Lenfest Scholarship can help me out a lot each year. Especially right now that my mom is the only one working and my dad isn’t. My dad is not working because he had an accident while working and is consider to have disability. At this moment we don’t know when he will be able to return back to work. If I do receive this scholarship this will encourage me to pursue my dreams in college, my studying and hard work will pay off. I will feel grateful

I believe that the situations I’ve been put through hold full responsibility for shaping me into the young, responsible, independent woman I have become. Going through my father’s deportation and having to depend on myself since I was only eight years old has had the biggest impact in my life.
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” –Henry David Thoreau. This quote demonstrates everything I wish to achieve while attending the University of Tennessee at Martin. Through this school and the amazing music program, I plan to become an even better leader, teacher, student, and trombone player. Having my work ethic, planning, and determination I have made it this far and I do not plan to slow down any time soon.

With this scholarship, a financial weight would be lifted off me and my family’s shoulders, and with the scholarship, I would
Paying for college is an expensive endeavor, and my goal is to complete my education with no loans or debts. My family has saved money for college from the time I was born, but the price tag is still more than we have. I have applied for many scholarships and will continue to do so throughout the next four years; however, the CWEA Scholarship provides me with a unique opportunity to use my talent and love for color guard to fund my education.
Everything around me helps to form who I am as a person and what I will become. Every experience helps me to learn and grow into a better person. “The powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse”. I am constantly transforming and evolving into my best self.

In this article, James is trying to inform the readers that people nowadays usually misunderstand the actual meaning of the word scholar. The correct definition of the word scholar is: “a person who is highly educated or has an aptitude for study.” Students are smart and very talented but they don’t have enough knowledge and experience to call themselves a scholar. Students and scholars are totally different words because of their meaning and the way they live their life. For instance, students are inspired by grades whereas, scholars are motivated by learning. James believes that it is teacher’s responsibility to address the word scholar in a right way in the classroom. In the end, James is trying to convince people to believe that they all
I am the person my world has shaped me to be, but I am also the person the world at large has made me. Widespread panic for Y2K made my father teach me more about system security than I ever wanted to know at the age of ten. I drooled the first time I saw a real G5, and put together my first circuit board when I was seven.
I can see with more clarity, the pieces of my life fitting nicely together, coalescing the past to the future while revealing a glimpse of the unknown. In retrospect, aspects of life which were challenging and difficult to understand were all vital factors in the overall scheme and part of the original plan. Suffering is said to be a key element in life, one not easily understood, yet capable of bestowing blessings beyond the pain. It hasn 't always been apparent, but the challenges presented to me are what shaped me into the individual I am today.
I come from a world of challenges. For instance, I have been going through many ups and downs. I am a very successful young woman that chose to show her good side more through cheerleading. I am the girl that is ahead of everyone else in my family because I know what I want to do in my future. I want to become a Cardiologist.
The number one thing most of the college students wish to receive is a scholarship. I am one of those students, and believe I deserve to be selected for Virgene Horn Memorial International Scholarship, because as a hard working student, I commit myself to effectively take advantage of the opportunity that the scholarships will provide me. During my high school years, I got a first place in Informatics Olympics Games in Baku, Azerbaijan. Moreover, I was a captain of the Maccabi Azerbaijan basketball team and player of Azerbaijan national team U-18.
Since being brought into this world on November 27, 1994, nearly twenty-one years ago, I have had many experiences that have shaped me into the person I am today. I have been through many obstacles that I didn’t think I would make it through, but after it was all said and done, I survived. Not only did I survive, I learned a lot of things about myself that I didn’t know. For one, I learned that I don’t give up, no matter how hard times get I keep pushing on which shows me that I’m strong. I am always there for those who are close to me no matter what, which shows me that I am loyal to those I love even when they may be in the wrong. I don’t like asking others for help even when I know I may need it, I just push harder so I can make it happen on my own which makes me see myself as independent. Through the many experiences that I have had, both good and bad, I have found that I am a strong, loyal, and independent.
Many events, people, and situations have shaped me into the individual I am. As I have grown up, I have developed my own personality and identity. Though I have had a great childhood, there have been times when I, along with my abilities, have been doubted. These situations taught me how to overcome obstacles, but they also helped me realize I am a competitive person who enjoys succeeding despite limitations. When my skills are doubted, I take it as a challenge to prove I can do whatever I set my mind to.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “To be yourself in a world that is trying to make you something else is a great accomplishment”. Who am I? is question that many often struggle to answer, but for me it allows me to differentiate from my constituents and express who I really am. What makes me such a unique individual is my ability to identify with 5 strong strengths. I love the fact that I am futuristic and I have the ability to relate, I am responsible, I am a developer and last but not least I am disciplined. Each one these themes shape and generate my personality. Born on February 22nd 2000 I am the only daughter to Rob and Theresa Jones. When I’m not roaming the illustrious campus of State University, I enjoy shopping I personally feel
