      Learner Math Lover Scholarship
      Ever since elementary school, I have loved math. I love challenges and problem-solving in everyday life, and math allows me to work through difficult problems in a classroom setting. Using equations to complete problems with a correct answer flawlessly feels rewarding, satisfying, and empowering. One of the reasons I love math is because, like laughter, it is a universal language. 2 + 2 is 4 in every language, which means it is a subject that transcends cultural and language barriers and can be used as a powerful communication tool. This year, I took AP Physics and AP Economics, which allowed me to further see how math is used in every single subject. I also broadened my mathematic skills by taking Probability and Statistics, which broadened my perspective on the use of math in everyday ideas. Math is one of the only subjects that seems truly practical, whether that may be measuring ingredients or budgeting for a purchase. To me, math is one of the broadest subjects, spanning out into just about every single other class I have taken. I love math because it teaches me to use skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and perseverance. It has helped me develop a logical mindset and approach problems with a systematic method. I plan to attend college to become a drafter, which will require mathematic skills such as geometric tolerancing and calculus. I hope to continue honing in on my math skills to become a successful drafter. I am a low-income student from Wisconsin. Thank you for your time considering my essay. I love math!
