Through volunteering, I’ve discovered that I have a passion for helping kids and want to play an important role in helping children become the best versions of themselves. I am the hard-working student I am today because of the foundation my elementary teachers built in me. They have inspired me to teach. I know the impact that they have made in my life. It is my hope that I will teach with that same fueling passion. I am inspired to pay it forward. Being a teacher gives me this opportunity. My career goal is to become an elementary school teacher. I want to attend the University of Kentucky to pursue a degree in Elementary Education. After I graduate, I plan to utilize my Elementary Education degree to help cultivate the minds of the youth. As an African American woman, I am excited about bringing more diversity to the education field. I want to impact children of all races to set a solid foundation for them. I want the children to remember the words that left such an impression on me, “you can be anything you want to be..”. I’ve learned from my father the importance of serving. My father left a corporate job to volunteer as an Associate Pastor at our church. Our church has found a way to pay my father a small amount (after a year of volunteering, but it is nothing in comparison to before). My parents don’t say much about it, but I know that the weight of keeping me active in organizations and getting me in college has to be on their minds. Being a recipient of this scholarship would be an honor and a blessing for not only myself but also for my parents. Furthermore, the scholarship would help me make my dream into reality and to fulfill the career goal I have for myself.
