The definition of earning a living for myself is constructed through assisting populations who are in need of a cultural change. In the fourth grade I was held back. I struggled in school with the language barrier and in the subject of mathematics. My parents couldn’t help me academically and I found myself sinking. As a seventh grader I was put into remedial classes, which included two math classes. This was something I was not proud of at all, so I took the initiative and I signed myself up for after school programs and at the same time studied at the library. The following year it paid off when I was put into one math class instead of two. When High school came along I picked up right where I left off. I took Algebra I as a freshman and in the summer took Geometry where I excelled at a great level. I didn’t imagine myself in Algebra II as a sophomore but I sure took advantage of my opportunity receiving A’s both semesters. The following year I took Math Analysis were my grades followed from Algebra II. I finished high school by taking calculus.
Currently, I am double majoring in mathematics and sociology where my goal is to become a math professor and create an educational foundation for minority students who struggle from an educational angle. At this foundation, I will provide college guidance for parents and students. My goal is to turn lost potential into a possibility.
