On the first Sunday in January of 2014, the pastor at my church announced to the congregation that this year’s theme for our church would be a “Commitment to Service.” I was sitting there thinking what does service mean and about how I’m contributing to my local community? I know I’m an active volunteer at my church food pantry which distributes food for those in need for last five years, and I’ve been an Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) Academic Tutor to the special education students at my school for last four years, making a lot of friendships while serving their needs. As teen I’m so glad I’ve volunteered and continued to volunteer because you learn so much about yourself and others.
I would like to be considered for this scholarship because I want to make a change in my life as well as in the lives of the people around me. My goal is to become an Obstetrics & Gynecology (OB/GYN) physician to help as many families as I can to make sure that their babies get all the care that they need. Becoming a doctor for the care of woman and babies is what I know I’ll love to do. Yes, this would be my contribution to world. An education can help me reach my goals and aspirations, to help others and provide that shade to the next generation.
