      Mamie Marie Clay Matthews Memorial Scholarship
      By choosing a career field in medicine my main objective is to heal people from the sicknesses and health issues as quickly and effectively as possible. By studying pre-medical biology at either Xavier or LSU, I will be informed on how to do so. A doctors plays an essential role to a community as people will always need someone there for them when they are sick and I will be that person. I am a born and raised Baptist-Christian,and it has done so much for me and my life. I can truly say that if it wasn't by God's grace I would not be here right now to apply for this scholarship. I say this with all my heart because, as I previously stated in this application, I was diagnosed in January of 2023 with type-1 diabetes. Before my diagnosis, my body was essentially failing. I was scared! I did not what to do. But since a child, I was taught when I feel like I'm at a helpless point in my life to call on God. So that is exactly what I did, and now here I am. My doctor informed me that my blood glucose level were over 600 mm/dL. And if I waited even a day too late that I probably wouldn't have made it to the next week. But, God was with me. He pushed me through the storm. And now here I am!
