FROM NICK’S HIGH SCHOOL ESSAY:
Our family motto is faith, family and education. I started volunteering at a young age at my church. A lot of other kids did not live with their parents, and one day someone used the words foster parent. I asked my parents and they explained. At the time the answer was beyond my depth, but I knew these kids were not as blessed to have a family such as mine.
I am attending Alabama State University, majoring in Sociology to pursue a career as a social worker because I want to dedicate my life to advocating for those who cannot advocate for themselves.
For some, college is a dream, but for me it’s not about wishing for it but working for it. Nelson Mandela state that “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
I plan on using my weapon to make a difference in the lives of others.
