I am a freshman majoring in Criminal Justice, trying to follow my dream of becoming an FBI agent. In high school I did not care for school, my dad passed away in my sophomore year, my mom had to take over the family business, which left me to be the 'mom'. I have two brothers, and two sisters, one of which dropped out of high school to help provide for us. All three of us girls are currently in the honors program. I made a promise to my dad, in which assured him I would graduate high school. I graduated high school and now I am a college student in which this time, I promised myself I would graduate.
First and foremost, the foundation scholarship has substantially reduced the financial burden on my parents. As we are going through difficult financial times as a result of the economy, and because the cost of college is expensive, even at CSI, every donation to my college education helps tremendously. Therefore, this scholarship has played a huge part in allowing me to go through my first year of college debt free.
By having the support of Foundation Scholarships, students are able to attend school and further their education without having to worry too much about the money. I personally wouldn't be able to attend college at all if I didn't have the support of scholarships. I would have to work a full time job and take out loans, causing me to worry too much about that stuff and not focusing on school. Without the options of scholarships, I would honestly question my choice in even attending college.
