I am currently a senior in high school just counting down the months to go to Boise State University! I have fought long and hard with my grades, family, and friendships to get to where I am in life and to have the opportunity to attend Boise State University this up coming fall. I am bound for success, always being open to a new life, opportunities, and relationships. I grew up in a home without a mother figure since the age of three which honestly sculpted me into who I have become. There were some very hard adversities I have faced with not having a mother figure present most my life, either it being not knowing how to handle situations, not having the advice from a mother, or if I was even going to be able to push through some of the times. If I had a chance to change anything, I would not change a single peck. If it weren’t for the challenges and successes of all kinds I faced, I would not have become the stronger and wiser individual than I ever would have dreamt while growing up. My goals would include living a life as the first generation college student, pursuing my nursing career, and starting a family of my own. I am going to pursue those three goals for myself, my four siblings, and my many cousins that all look up to me, being the oldest in the family so they know it is more than possible to turn their dreams into reality. I am a go-getter, a hard-worker, and an optimistic individual ready for life's next journey while being ready to face those even harder times!
