Personal Statement

My career goal is to become a civil rights attorney so I can help those less fortunate by giving them proper representation that protects their civil rights. The laws in this nation need a revamping and I want to become an advocate for policy change. My heart hurts when I think about the killing of all the unarmed black men in this country without any justice being served to those held accountable. I feel like these are the times when new leaders need to step forward and set the standard. Sometimes people have dreams and sometimes people have callings. I have a calling. My purpose and passion has always been to help those with my sound advice. I'm an older college student. I think differently now that my mind is mature and seasoned. My understanding of how to problem solve because of my experience in life is the reason why a future career in law has become a professional goal of mines. Being an exceptional student is one of the caveats that come with being older. As I continue to grow my passion to help those less fortunate continues to burn. Becoming an attorney would put me in a position to provide a service that I know I will be great at. My education is a priceless commodity that I do not take for granted. I plan to use this platform to educate those about the law and how civil rights goes hand in hand with human rights.Finishing my education without the barriers that can prevent students such as myself from succeeding at their goal is my biggest obstacle. This scholarship would be the reason why I can finish what I started.
