Bio

Hey My name is Timira Mayo. I have been trying to find scholarships and grants until my friend recommended this one. My future goals are - a lawyer, Track Star, social worker, and more. I have a lot of dreams that I want to accomplish and achieve because I'm not the type to just give up I'm the type that’s gonna go after it. I come from a struggling home and a small town called Pinetops. We don’t have much but I know one thing we will always have and that’s God. No matter how much we struggle we still have faith in each other and God. That’s why I'm trying to change my life and my family. I got a lot of confidence in myself and a lot of love. Even though I got rejected from a lot of college I continue to keep going and not give up because I know there is something out there for me. I hope you understand and listen to what I'm saying because struggling is hard, and fighting is hard, but im always believe in myself no matter what even if I come from a small town I truly believe that God will bless me even if it is small I'm still blessed!

      The reality of a new life I have realized that significant changes are coming into my life as I transition into becoming a college freshman. When I leave high school I’ll miss it, but I won’t forget who helped me through all the struggles, the pain, and the times when I just gave up on everything and I couldn’t do it anymore. The one person was God. He was there through every step of the way. He never left my side no matter the situation or how hard God never left. My entire life he was the one that I could always depend on and count on no matter what. God is so good and real. I've been through so many things that you won’t even believe it. I'll tell you the story that just made me this way now. I have been through suicidal thoughts. As I have let people get to me and I would do things to hurt myself, I would give up on everything because of those people, I would cry every single night in silence because of them. For example, there were false narratives about me that weren't true. They were saying how I was promiscuous with guys and slut shaming me like It felt as If I was in the Scarlet Letter. When I came back to school the next day guys would come up and Male Gaze at me while they were talking to me. It’s like the whole school just messed my whole reputation up throughout my whole High School experience. The Guys even wrote repulsive words in their bathroom and I had to get that removed by an administration. This hurt damaged me throughout my whole high school experience. I never really had a good experience at high school. Everybody treated me differently; they still do this today. Once I had prayed to God as I was crying and wounded. He has saved me from everything during these times and he still saves me. I'm a very good human being and smart. I don’t understand how I let everybody get to me like that. Maybe I'm just easy to get through or maybe they're just doing it for fun, but I know one thing God protected me from all of it. I'm going to start a new life and I’m going to become better and more successful than I already am. Those people who have hurt me so much will see how much they can’t hurt me anymore. I just thank God for allowing and helping me through all of this as I start a new life the way I want to start by following through with him and spreading his words. I want to go to your college to take all of my actions, skills, hard-working strategies, and much more to bring to your college. I believe that’s what y’all need to see as a person. I love playing sports like basketball, tennis, and track. I want to go to college because I want to run track. I want to show everybody what I can do and prove to the world that no matter what people say to you, you can do it If you just believe in yourself and trust yourself. ROMANS 14:22, “The faith which you have, have as your own conviction before God, happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves”. As I keep this verse with me, I remember that God will heal you through anything you suffer and love you no matter what. Enjoy life to the fullest and live it.

      As many know there are a lot of people who face different disabilities. I know it takes some time to face them in person like at school, home, or at a friend's house Wherever you at people turn and treat you differently, judge you, and couldn’t care less about you because you’re different. Having a disability doesn’t make you different it’s how special you are in your way. I’m proud to have a disability I have a learning disability and dyslexia. I get treated differently because of how I do things and how it is taught. I want to be treated the same as everybody else no differences. God made all of us the same. We have the same blood, we were born the same, and we breathe the same. There is no right to be different embrace yourself self embrace the world that you are who you are and are meant to be. I have been diagnosed with this since I was a baby honestly. I have been having trouble with the way how I talk sometimes I do have a little stuttering problem then and there. But having these things going on doesn’t change the fact that I'm a human. People judge but it doesn’t bother me. They say things to hurt you or to fear you or anything. Been going through a tough life with these kinds of disabilities but I'm not ashamed of it. And you shouldn’t be either. Why I'm a good candidate for this scholarship? I know how it feels and I have been through struggles, fears, and judgment. We all have. I remember when I used to just sit down at my desk stare at my work and start thinking about what should i do. I used to be scared to ask questions because I was afraid I might say something dumb. Once you say something dumb they all start to laugh that's what I was afraid of. until I changed my ways and started to become better because being in that position is just gonna make you worse and stress you out. Just a reminded you can do anything you wanna do and become anything you want to it doesn't matter how what type of disability you got just to know they You were created the way you were which is beautiful being or having a disabled because no matter you is , you are beautiful.
