My father passed away from cancer and I now live with my mother who has 3 other children. The ceiling at our old house collapsed which caused us to move and then we lost everything we had. I got accepted into Old Dominion University and I plan to major in psychology. I chose ODU because it is close to home and being the oldest of 4, I want to be able to help out and support my family.

My father was big on me receiving a great education and I want to be able to make that happen. I have very strong grades, I received honor roll my whole senior year and I plan to continue my academic success when I attend ODU in the fall. I am a hard-working and dedicated student. After college, I plan to go back and receive my masters, and then my PhD so that I can own my own practice. My goal is $2500 over the next 30 days so that I can be matched half of my tuition bill to start me off. Lastly, my plan to give back is by doing community service, supporting my local charities, and also supporting the American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen For The Cure. Thank you to my supporters.
