My mom and my teachers have taught me how important it is to work hard and always make sure I am doing my best. Thank you to my mom and my teachers for helping me understand that I really can be a nurse someday. My mom is awesome and helps me all the time. I know I will be serving people when I graduate as a nurse.
My scholarship has helped me understand that someday I can be a lawyer to help other parents and kids — just like me. People who will need my help. My school teaches us new values every month.
We got to go to school all through the pandemic. We saw our teachers, friends and did real good. Someday I am going to teach students just like my favorite teachers.
I now understand how hard my mom works to help me attend my private school and how much my scholarship helps me be able to stay in my school — it is the best school anywhere! This makes me work even harder and already know I will attend college someday. I will also help my little brother and other students to do the same. I want my brother to come to my school because our principal and teachers really help us and care about us. I am already planning my own business someday.
I will be a doctor some day because I want to help people, the way I have been helped. My family gets scholarships for me and my brother. When I become a doctor, I will teach other students that they have to work hard and stay away from bad things. I will help by giving scholarships to them.
We love going to school and have asked our dad if we can stay for the after-school program, just to be with our teachers and friends a little longer. Every day is special as we know how much our teachers want us to do our best. My sister and I have perfect attendance and are on the honor roll.
My mom and dad could not get help for me — I could not understand how to learn reading, writing or math and could not pass the tests for my grade. Some wonderful people said they would help get a scholarship to help my parents and get a school to help — no matter what. My parents thought we did not qualify. I am now in my grade – thanks to wonderful teachers and a principal who takes time every day to help me. They showed me what it means to know God loves even a kid who was not passing. I am doing great – I am even helping my friends at school and learning to play the piano. I am going to college someday. With God, all things are possible.
When I first got a scholarship for a school that could help me learn — even though my family could not speak English — I was really scared. Every day, I learned more English, and I taught my family what I learned. I just graduated 8th grade and am going to high school with a scholarship. I am already thinking of college and becoming a teacher for kids who do not know English.
