As a child of a parent that never graduated high school, was a teen mother, and had also gone to rehab on multiple occasions: At a young age I thought there was no hope to achieve anything in life. My parents did not know the steps to take to make sure I was more successful than what they ever imagined they could be. After starting school, I had received all A’s and the teachers noticed the potential I had and pushed me further and further to do the best I could. Before moving on the middle school, my teachers all voted to allow me to receive the legion award, this is an award that is voted on to show determination and the love of learning that I had proven. Going into the educational field, I want to show all the other deserving kids that no matter how undeserving they feel, that they can always choose a new road in life. I am hoping after four short years of college I can make this road I have taken a similar road for children that need my guidance.

Thank you for your time,
Ashley Schooley
