THE STORY:

After I graduated high school, I became certain that if I wanted to pursue a higher education I needed to be persistent and determined to achieve my career aspirations. However, I would not be at this level in my education without my mom's support. Without having my father's emotional and economical assistance, she has learned how to provide me with a decent quality of life. She works as a a cook in my hometown, but she knows the money she earns is not enough to pay for my medical career. As a result, I search for scholarships and job opportunities that could contribute to the achievement of my college education and help pay for basic needs in our home. I also believe that being an immigrant made my decision of attending to college more challenging. I immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico when I was sixteen years old. Luckily I spoke English, but my mom and I did not really understand how the school system worked. Therefore, when senior year of high school arrived I did not really understand the process of attending college. I did not know that I had to talk to a school advisor about attaining a college education or find scholarships to pay for school. I had no knowledge of the types of tests that I had to take like the SATs, ACTs, or even college assessment exams. However, after researching this information online and meeting with college advisors, my mom and I have learned all of these strategies that help students accomplish a higheI education.One of the first things that I have done in order to overcome the challenge of being a low income student I decided to look for a job but no luck yet thought that my mom was overwhelming herself, so I decided to help her run the cleaning business . In order to help my mom focus on her job,. In addition, I help cover my family’s basic expenses by babysitting and tutoring other college students in math or chemistry. While I am constantly trying to find more work and searching for scholarships that. will help me pay for my education
