Raleigh, North Carolina, United States
My participation in community service projects has been to feed the hungry at Morris Square bi-annually. I have visited and served food at an elderly home in Raleigh with the youth from my church, and served as a mentor and coach for younger cheerleaders. My dedication, determination and experience in high school gave me momentum to continue to do well in college. Upon completing my sophomore year at North Carolina Central I was inducted in 100 Black Women, a member of the track team and receiving the True Grit Award and Iron Eagle Award all while maintaining my GPA and continuing my volunteer work. Life for me is doing the very best I can.Life is here for me to live and learn from my mistakes. There are times where I might need to reevaluate and analyze how I can be more successful and responsible. Taking advantage of the freedom of learning l know I can always learn something new. What I have learned so far is that one should never give up on what is important in life. “When at first you don’t succeed try again andagain” never give up. My motto is to never keep my head down and walk backwards but to keep my head up and keep moving forward. Reflecting on my future I know that with the help of God, my family and others I can attain my goals in life.
