Obtaining a higher education is what I believe is the key to success in life. In today’s society many people are unable to financially afford the costs associated with earning a degree. Finances have always been a major issue for my family because my mother is 100% permanently disabled and my father is absent in my life; so attending college was merely a dream for me. As I got older my mother always told me, "I do not have any money to put you through college so you are going to have to pay for it on your own.” Today, it has given me a great sense of self-fulfillment to know that I’m not “just another statistic.” I can proudly say I am a first generation college student!

Growing up in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area was not easy because the inner city was plagued by crime, and the opportunity for educational advancements were limited. From a very young age, I was motivated and determined to succeed, so that one day I could help provide for my family, give back to the community and achieve my dreams. I still possess that same determination and motivation and I will stop at nothing to become successful!

I am convinced that with your help I will be able to start and finish my education at Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine. As a full time, out of state veterinary student, the estimated cost of tuition is $18,135. Although my financial situation is challenging at the moment, I am certain that an education in veterinary medicine at Tuskegee University will provide me with the solid knowledge base and the freedom to explore my unique interests under the appropriate guidance from scholars in the veterinary field. If given the opportunity to study today, I will be better prepared to serve tomorrow.
