I chose to attend ASU because: I am finishing my junior year at ASU this year. I entered ASU with a GED, very low SAT scores, and a strong desire to get a college degree. Today, I am the recent recipient of the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship (it is the largest scholarship on the planet $30k) and a HOPE scholarship recipient. I consider myself to be very blessed and extremly honored to be the only member of my family to ever attend college and look forward to getting my degree. In short, I am a miracle. I think it was ASU that chose me. I just filled out the forms and applied.
My favorite things to do on campus are : Read in the library and stare out the windows of University Hall (they are both very relaxing). I also like the Baseketball games and attending movies during the film series on campus.
When I have free time, I like: Reading, sleeping, running,spending time with the people I love, and travelling.
The craziest thing I've done is: No comment
My favorite place to study is: Starbucks
My favorite professor is: Dr. Holley Carter. She has helped me in ways she will never know or understand.
After graduation, I plan to: Go to graduate school, join the Peace Corp, and then go to work for the United Nations or the US State Department
The one ASU experience I will always remember will be: When Dr. Carter called me to let me know that I won the Rotary Scholarship. It was the happiest day of my life.
