My desire is to attend college on a full scholarship. My chosen major is radiation therapy/pre-med. I plan to graduate as a radiation therapist, and work in the field for one to two years. During that time, I will complete my medical school pre-requisite classes and study for the MCAT. After attending and graduating from medical school, I plan to seek a radiation oncology residency with the ultimate goal of becoming a radiation oncologist. More importantly, I want to develop an outreach program for cancer patients that are underserved in radiation oncology. I would love to be married one day and have a family. I believe that having a career as a radiation oncologist will allow me to have a balanced life. I know that it can be challenging to have a medical career and a family with children. I do plan to continue to volunteer in my community. I am interested in starting a mentorship program that encourages other girls to consider STEM majors and careers. I would pair the program participants with college students in STEM majors and professionals in STEM careers. I want to organize shadow days for the students so that they may get a feel for how rewarding STEM can be.

I remember graduating high school with so many people asking me what I wanted to do, at that time I had no idea, so I was having somewhat of an existential life crisis. But, when not only a few weeks later a very stressful and traumatic event happened in my life. Pushing me on the path to studying Law /Criminal justice. Now, my goal is to work as a lawyer to fight those who seek to exploit lower- and middle-class people. Right now, I am a freshman in Community College seeking to complete my associate's with my tuition base scholarship. as soon as I graduate with my associate's, I plan on transferring to a four-year accredited university in which I can study more political science classes preparing me for law school. Ultimately, I plan to become an attorney make my way through the promotional ladder finally become a judge. When it comes to finances, I fully expect to be financially stable in the future. Growing up living paycheck to paycheck is something I want to drastically change creating multiple streams of income for me and my future family. Not only will I create generational wealth within my family but I also want to give back money to my community by helping the children I live with within my community. The children in my community deserve better than being with their circumstances and I want to help them escape the cycle of poverty.

My life goal has ALWAYS been to become an Engineer. Deciding which type was the challenge but after seeing my own father's love of anything electronic, I have decided I would love to learn Electrical Engineering. Computer Engineering is a close second. I am so motivated to get out there and make it! I have wanted to go into engineering since I was around 10 years old. This is the future that I see for myself and I will not let anything stand in my way, not even myself. My GPA is not only impressive but I have attended every single day of the last four years of high school even through the COVID pandemic. I can remember being in the fifth grade and being asked to write a story about what I wanted to be when I grew up and while most kids chose a Rockstar and a firemen, I wanted to be an engineer, electrical to be precise. My Mother loved that paper and kept it somewhere in her closet of my accomplishments. I wake up every morning with one goal in my head and that is to be the best I can today so that my future is bright! Thank you for your consideration; Braxton

Regardless of what university I attend after high school, it's my goal to study Biology on a Pre-Medicine track. I have been learning Spanish for over six years, so I want to continue improving on it as a minor. Directly after college, I want to go to Medical School to begin my journey of becoming an Obstetrician. I developed a liking for Obstetrics and Gynecology because I noticed that women, especially black women, are misrepresented in healthcare. As a black obstetrician, I will be the person to offer women of color safety and solidarity amidst their road to delivery. Similar to how everyone should have an equal opportunity to live, all minorities should have equal means to quality maternal care. During my educational path, I hope to pave the way for children of color and inform them that it's possible to do anything you set your mind to. I also want to highlight the importance of having more diversity in black doctors in the medical field because I remember I had never seen doctors of color as a child. In the city I grew up, there wasn't much of a future for the children or any motivation. When I further my education, I plan on going back to my community to use my story to inspire children from low-income families. I know that violence and crime are higher in underprivileged areas, and I feel that the children who live there deserve to have role models the most. I believe in encouraging the youth because the youth is our future. The future generations should have genuine opportunities to succeed, and I feel that it is my destiny to use my background to be a voice for those children.
