In the past few years, there’s been dramatic changes in my life that have brought me to where I am today. A few years ago I wouldn’t have thought that I’d be going to Grand Valley State University, let alone even known that a month ago. The people in my community: family, friends, and anyone else that I have crossed, have given me the resources that I need to succeed.

In my community, many people are do not have the resources that I have been thankful to receive, thus changing where life takes them. If I could choose just one thing to do for a living, it would be to help others succeed. The past couple of years has opened my eyes to see a new world around me. Seeing how others helping has changed my future, I believe that sometimes all it takes is someone to help guide you onto the right path. The small act of one person, or many people, can lead to more students being successful. With these small actions, hopefully it would build a chain reaction, and also help the future generations of students to come.
