Personal Statement

Growing up in the city of Appleton, Wisconsin I realized that I had dreams that were bigger than what my city had to offer me. Despite being told by my counselor and my tennis coach that schools in California were too hard for me to get into, I applied to my dream school, the University of Southern California. I never let the limitations they tried to impose on me deter me from my dreams. My senior year, I saved as much money as I could, even leaving school on my lunch break at school to work for that hour. Finally, the day came when I received the good news and saw I had been accepted to USC, it felt like all my hard work had finally been rewarded. I arrived at USC with the hopes of continuing on to law school after four years. I did my best to keep up my grades and stay focused. However, I was 2,000 miles away from all my friends and family while working two jobs. My past three years have been filled with stress due to my finances and I am hoping that with the help of this program I will be able to pay closer attention to my studies as I prepare to apply to law school.
