Scholarship kept accounting dream alive

 

I was ready to go home. I was so worried that I wasn't going to be able to pay for classes. When I got the scholarship letter, I just started crying. I had been praying on it, so it was a moment of pure joy. I knew right then and there things were going to work out.

 

After my little sister saw me go to college, she wanted to go too. Seeing that the people around me are proud of what I'm doing makes me proud of myself.
