I was facing a hard time at school. I was still adapting and didn’t know how to study. I was on the verge of being kicked out. I wasn’t a bad student; I just didn’t have the study habits that other more privileged students had. I had financial hardship and my parents were paying my rent and some food while I worked, but it was difficult balancing everything. The money I received not only helped me financially, it gave me some peace of mind knowing that I had support and someone decided to take a chance on me by giving me this scholarship.
