When I was a little girl, I went to the NASA space museum and fell in love with science. I knew then what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Science fairs were always fun, and when I was doing the projects, everything just clicked, and I knew exactly what to do. I got older, and science got harder, but my passion for it never waned. In eighth grade, chemistry was introduced to me, and I stuck with it through my high school lab classes and my first year in college and have no intentions to let it go.
There are many things that I want to do with my degree, and I plan to do them all. I want to create a cure for cancer, and see the children in St. Jude’s smiling faces when they are told they don’t have to worry anymore. I want my use of chemistry to make a difference in people’s lives. I want to be able find remedies to every ailment and for people to not worry about how to pay me.
This scholarship will help me on my way to attain an education for myself. To be able to do the things I want, and to be able to save these people, I need to learn how. I plan on finishing school and even going up to doctorate level. My goal is to save the world one day.
