“It pretty much gave me a full ride.”

Both of my parents worked. You know, throughout high school my dad was holding two jobs, before that he held up to four jobs. And my mom worked occasionally, whatever part-time work she can find. I’m not going to lie, but all the way through high school we were struggling financially.

So looking for scholarships, the hardest part was trying to find the scholarships and be able to actually get in touch with the people that needed to help you get through the application process. My first year of college, I had two scholarships that gave me a grand total of six thousand dollars. And being in an in-state institute, it pretty much gave me a full ride.
