Bio

I have always been passionate about cars as early as my childhood, but once I discovered car racing, my passion for learning about this field of study soared. This is the reason I plan to attend college to pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering. It will allow me the opportunity to not only learn about this industry but it will lead me to one day being able to design an entire fleet of automobiles.

    My educational goal is to attend college and work toward obtaining an engineering degree. I love cars and I am an avid race car fan. From a very young age, I have studied the way that they are designed, the speed, the roar of the engine, aerodynamics, the varying colors, and the computer systems they house. Someone once said, if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life; as a result, I am majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I am passionate not only about the idea of an actual car but about truly learning the business of the automotive industry. This is a true passion of mine. My career as a race car driver can allow me to build towards my ultimate dream of opening my own car manufacturing plant focusing on designing high-end race and luxury cars. In thinking about my future, I tend to consider opportunities afforded to me that many are not able to even dream about. Poverty is very real and it comes in many forms including, insufficient food, access to basic utilities or transportation, lack of education, and even life on the street. I believe that I can use my passion to influence others through example and building business relationships that see a benefit in building profitable communities and the impact that can have on their financial goals. In reviewing the life stories of the rich and famous, there appears to be a greater drive to help those in other countries, however, I plan to focus on those we drive past each day. In opening a business of my own, I would like to partner with non-profit and public service organizations to invest in continued education as well as bring about awareness services are available to the public. Often, communities are not aware of where they can turn to for assistance and with that knowledge, they are one step closer to pulling themselves out of a bad situation. I would also like to provide the necessary training to allow for employment opportunities for those interested in car manufacturing through internships and mentoring. Working alone cannot stamp out poverty but working together as a community can go a long way to end this plague. Obtaining a scholarship would mean so much to me and my family because it makes carrying the weight of this financial burden a bit lighter and I will be able to focus solely on my education. It would also provide me with the ability to pursue my chosen career after college and realize success at a faster rate so that I can not only be of help to those with a greater need by continuing to pay it forward. I hope that you will consider me a good candidate for this scholarship opportunity.
