Personal Statement

Hello, I've been stuck in quarantine for many months now and recently I have been scrambling for scraps to keep my bank account from dying. Although recently I have been relying on my brother to cover half of my portion of my rent, I feel like I casted a heavy burden on my brother. He is very stressed with balancing work with studies and I want to lessen the load on him by being less dependent on him. My brother also funds for my hobbies as well because he is very supportive of me making music, so not relying on him would decrease his urgency to keep working for my sake. I also recently decided what I wanted to do for my major. Although I am currently undeclared, I decided that I want to become a stats major. With your contribution, I can have a better chance of providing for my family and other students with funding their education.
