My family was never very financially stable and at times, it felt like my dream of a college degree was a little too far out of reach. I have spent every summer stressing about how I was going to pay for my tuition the next year. I am so grateful for receiving scholarships which have kept me in school. I don’t know what I would do without them.
I was a full-time manager of a chain establishment before I decided to go to college. My parents did not graduate from high school, so going to college is a big deal for my family. I want to do something more and I know an education is the best way to attain that. I want to serve my community as a police officer. College has shown me, I can succeed.
I have learned many valuable skills while taking part in PSU’s business school and I can apply them within numerous industries. I feel as though my time at Plymouth has prepared me for success in any field I choose. The contribution you have made in sponsoring this scholarship is greatly appreciated, and I hope to make a similar contribution once I have established myself.
College is on me, and though I got my first job on my 16th birthday, it’s hard to save for college in two short years. I am forever grateful for donors who can help those who come from less fortunate backgrounds. Thank you for your generous contribution towards my education and that of my peers. You’re truly changing our lives for the better!
