As a first generation college student, over the course of my collegiate career thus, I’ve developed what I would call – “The Drum Major Instinct”. This instinct is a desire to be out front, a desire to lead the parade, a desire to be first. And it is something that runs the whole gamut of life, as stated by the honorable Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Indeed, being around like minded people that push me to become my best version is a necessity. When you surround yourself with people that have the same vision and believe in you even when you don't believe in yourself, you unleash the greatness within you. Granted, my time at Shaw University has allowed me to become strength, belief, and hope to the youth in my community. Granted, my environment has helped mold me into the individual that I am today. However as humbly as I know how, I ask to be accepted as a scholar whom you wouldn't mind supporting to further advance my knowledge and gain the skills necessary in order to facilitate student learning and achievement that will ultimately enhance the spiritual and ethical values of myself as a student for the benefit of the diverse community of learners that I will lead into future global leaders one day.
