to show that your GPA does not define your success
I'm a smart girl and love learning. But, I learned that teachers cared more about the letter at the top of my paper than the information I was actually receiving, which left me lacking motivation and a decent GPA. But no matter how much I was doubted by teachers, friends, and even adults I admired, I will be graduating with my class in May, 2015!

people deserve to know that there's always hope.
I've battled some emotional problems and have had friends who fell to the very upsetting sickness. Depression isn't a joke and some people need to know that there's always a reason to keep going forward. Everyone is worth something and no one is worth nothing.

I want to share God with people through horses
The horse world often revolves around money and winning. Often we forget who gave us horses and who should have the glory when we do succeed. God gave us the horse and we can use it as a tool to reach others who marvel in the beauty and power that we have been blessed with.

to make sure my parents don't work another day
My parents are hard workers. They express the importance of education and how by having one you can succeed in life. I want to become a doctor, this mean I have to go to school for many years. However, I know it will be worth it. By becoming a doctor I have the ability to help others, research the unknown and make my parents proud.

to help better the mental state of people in need.
I have had family members and close friends deal with different mental health issues. I have heard stories of kids and teenagers who have gone through terrible experiences and I want to be there for them. I want them to have someone who can help them and try to understand exactly what they have gone through and what they continue to deal with.

I want to be apart of something greater than me!
My dream is to be a traveling nurse and experience the world by helping others. I desire to learn more about the science of the human body. I am intrigued by the different medicines and techniques to heal our bodies. Whether it be a cut with a couple of stiches or a cancerous tumor I hope to someday be apart of something greater than myself.

I want to incRease resource awareness.
I grew up in an environment that did not promote success. I know the challenges of achieving goals given that environment. I would like to start a business that bridges the communication gap between underprivileged students and the resources available to help them succeed at accomplishing their goals.

I want to bring change into the system we live in.
I want to be able to help keep families together as a social worker. I also want to be able to help children from the low-income class succeed in a society that is filled with manipulating and oppressive systems. Power shouldn't be handled by people who want money and power. It's for those who strive to bring change in the world we live in.
