    Bold Dream Big Scholarship
    I believe I can make the most impact possible by becoming an educator. I want to become a teacher of high school students and improve the trajectories of my students' futures. One of my teachers guided me in this direction after seeing me work with some other students. I will be the calm, compassionate, and understanding teacher that many high school students desperately need. I want to become a teacher, and I will impact the lives of the teenagers and young adults that I will be teaching. I will impact their lives by teaching them the course material and important life lessons within. I will teach my students to become respectable young adults who will hopefully pass on the lessons and values I will teach them. Another perk of becoming a teacher is the schedule. I hope to have some children and it would be a dream to have the same schedule as them. As a teacher, I would be able to spend my summers with my family. I would spend this time doing things like hiking, camping, and traveling. This scholarship would help me achieve my dream life. Thank you for your time!

I will teach my students to become respectable young adults who will hopefully pass on the lessons and values I will teach them. My motivation for becoming a teacher comes from my teachers. My teachers have inspired me by being the people I want to be and making me aware of my ability to do that. I have seen the impact that my teachers have had on some of my peers and me. I hope to have the same effect on future generations. I know what I want with my life, and that goal creates a demand for higher education. I need to earn my bachelor's degree in education to live out this goal. While advancing my education, I plan on tutoring my peers. That will go hand in hand with my future career plans. I hope to help my peers to succeed in college. I hope to develop skills that will help me to become a successful teacher. My goals, whether that is while in college or while teaching, are designed to help people. I hope to spend my life improving people's odds of success. Thank you for your time.
